The Dead (Silver Gloss/Chocolate Skull)
Damien Hirst first came to public attention in London in 1988 when he conceived and curated "Freeze, " an exhibition in a disused warehouse that showed his work and that of his friends and fellow students at Goldsmiths College. In the nearly quarter of a century since that pivotal show (which would come to define the Young British Artists), Hirst has become one of the most influential artists of his generation.
The Dead (Silver Gloss/Chocolate Skull) (2009) continues Hirst's glorification of the skeletal, linking itself closely to his acclaimed 2007 work, 'For the Love of God'. Sold on consignment.
