Joseph Beuys selected the drawings which make up The Secret Block for a Secret Person in Ireland from his prolific output between 1936 and 1976. For anyone seeking to understand Beuys and his art, these images are the most concise overall introduction to the enigmatic and pioneering work of this most influential of German postwar artists. Last shown in this country in 1974 at the Museum of Modern Art in Oxford, all 456 drawings which now comprise The Secret Block for a Secret Person in Ireland are shown together in the Royal Academy's 1999 exhibition. Illustrated throughout in full colour, this book contains thought-provoking essays by Norman Rosenthal and the renowned Beuys expert Heiner Bastian, a chronology of Beuys's life, and the complete, illustrated text of a historic speech given by Beuys at the opening of his exhibition 'Drawings 1946-1971' in the Haus Lange Museum, Krefeld, on 19 May 1974.
