Description "No. 1: First Works of 362 Contemporary Artists" showcases 'first' works by a raft of the world's greatest contemporary artists. The artists were asked to submit what they considered their 'first' work of art - not the first piece they ever created, but their first 'defining' one, the one that set their style and clearly signposted their artistic direction. Their submissions, along with artists' statements, make up this fascinating look at the process of art-making.
