This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Damien Hirst: The Veil Paintings at Gagosian, Beverly Hills. Taking the Visual Candy paintings of the 1990s as a point of departure, in this series Hirst embraces color and gestural painting on a large scale. Referencing both Abstract Expressionism and Impressionism, including Georges Seurat and Pierre Bonnard, The Veil Paintings layer brushstrokes and bright dabs of heavy impasto, enveloping the viewer in vast fields of color.

The publication documents thirty-seven paintings in the exhibition with plate and detail images as well as installation photography. It features a new essay by Lisa Small with illustrations and a double-sided dust jacket, available in two options.
