Original Language: German
This lavish volume, which covers two decades of the work of German-born Kiefer, beautifully captures the spirit and creative process of one of the great artists of the 20th century. The book is composed of selections from Kiefer's artist books, in which he developed a multilayered process of painting over photographs and incorporating a variety of materials, including molten lead, clay, sand, and straw. The uncropped reproductions are of such superior quality that readers will almost feel that they are viewing Kiefer's work in the original. A brief but insightful introductory section, written by several noted art historians, truly helps to make Kiefer's creations accessible to the general public. Clearly, the publisher has spared no expense in producing an impeccable art book that stands as a beautiful monument to this important artist's work. Recommended for all fine arts collections.
