About

Title: Anselm Kiefer (Venezia Contemporaneo) Publisher: Brand: Charta Publication Date: 1997 Binding: Soft cover An excellent overview of Anselm Kiefer_s long career. Over the past four decades, Anselm Kiefer has produced a diverse body of work in painting, sculpture and installation that has made him among the most important artists of his generation. His subject-matter ranges over sources as diverse as Teutonic mythology and history, alchemy and the nature of belief, all depicted in a bewildering variety of materials, including oil paint, dirt, lead, models, photographs, woodcuts, sand, straw and all manner of organic material. By adding found materials to the painted surface of his immense tableaux, he invents a compelling third space between painting and sculpture. Synopsis: This monograph presents Kiefer's complete work to date, reproduced in full color. Review: Writing about one of the most important and complex artists of our times requires the erudition, clarity, and broad view of a Daniel Arasse, author of the gorgeously illustrated Anselm Kiefer. Avoiding a straightforward chronological survey, Arasse plunges directly into Kiefer's major themes and the ways they reflect the artist's subtly evolving perspectives on German history, the role of the artist, and the meaning of life. Arasse illuminates Kiefer's use of Jewish kabbalistic symbolism, his relationship to philosophers and writers from Nietzsche to Celan, and the rich trove of metaphor to be found in his use of lead, straw, books, and images of railroad tracks and artists' palettes. Never succumbing to art-speak, Arasse--whose French text has been deftly translated into English--marshals his arguments with lucid elegance. The approximately 400 full-color plates, including full views and close-ups, are magnificent. Artwork by Christian Boltanski, Anselm Kiefer. Edited by Germano Celant. Contributions by Massimo Cacciari. Series: Venezia contemporaneo. Binding type: Paperback. Publisher: Edizioni Charta Srl. Year published: 2010-04-29. Number of pages: 426. This is a Collectible book.
