Artifex Press is a publisher of digital catalogues raisonnés, which are the definitive, comprehensive, and annotated compilations of all the known works of an artist. Traditionally produced in book form, catalogues raisonnés have often posed a dilemma for scholars. Because the information in a catalogue raisonné is constantly in flux, printed catalogues raisonnés cannot achieve both completeness and accuracy. Artifex Press was conceived to resolve this problem, offering a solution that is more accessible, more flexible, more time- and cost-efficient, and above all, more accurate and up-to-date than the traditional printed counterpart.
Artifex Press currently includes the catalogues raisonnés of Chuck Close, Jim Dine, Tim Hawkinson, Agnes Martin, Lucas Samaras, and James Siena. They are currently working with some 20 artists, estates, and foundations, including Carl Andre, Robert Irwin, Lee Ufan, Sol LeWitt, Niki de Saint Phalle, Lucas Samaras, and Frank Stella.
