This monumental seven-volume collection chronicles a lifetime of work in exhaustive detail. Compiled by art historian Kathie Sutherland over seven years, the set of cloth-bound books is presented in a deluxe, elegantly finished slipcase and presents more than 4600 artworks, including hundreds of never-before-published works.

Weighing 21 kilograms and totalling 2400 pages, Brett Whiteley: Catalogue Raisonné: 1955–1992 is an unprecedented publishing event that confirms Whiteley’s enduring significance as a visionary force of Australian art.

Volumes I, III and IV hold paintings and drawings from the 1950s to the 1990s; Volume II contains exquisite concertina fold-outs of the mammoth Alchemy and The American Dream; Volume V contains Whiteley’s prints; and Volume VI compiles his ceramics and sculpture. A final book, Volume VII, holds essays, a cataloguing text, an exhibition history, an artist’s biography, a bibliography and an index of persistent themes that lend insightful form to the expanse of Whiteley’s rich and varied oeuvre.
