Catalogue Raisonné

The Foundation is presently undertaking a long-term project to publish Ben Enwonwu’s entire artistic output in a comprehensive, multi-volume, illustrated catalogue raisonné. Each volume will feature a detailed chronology of his life and career, as well as discuss his materials and working methods. Catalogue entries for each work will include a full description, condition, provenance, exhibition history and bibliography. A list of works lost, destroyed, and fakes will also feature in the publication.

The catalogue will be distributed to art libraries around the world and available for sale from the Foundation. In addition, it will be online on this website.
