This book covers nearly fifty years of Alan Charlton’s artistic work and the relationship established over almost twenty-five years with the galleries A arte Invernizzi in Milan and Annely Juda Fine Art in London. It re-traces Charlton’s entire creative process, as far back as the first important solo exhibitions of 1972. It includes archival material, selected by the artist, along with the first photograph - never published before - in which Alan is portrayed alongside his early grey monochromes. This was taken in 1971 at the Royal Academy in London, the first time he had the opportunity to see his works installed in an exhibition venue. The images, both historical and recent, and the texts published here, illustrate all the different stages of Charlton’s creative path. They look at the very personal and immersive way in which he makes his grey paintings and at the exhibitions held in museums and public spaces as well as those realized thanks to lasting collaborations with private galleries
