Equal parts eloquent tribute and respected monograph, Anselm Kiefer is organized both chronologically and to reflect the artist’s recurrent motifs, including Nordic and Germanic mythologies, Jewish mysticism, the cosmos, the legends of the ancient world, and many more. Approximately 250 full-color images reproduce his art at the highest possible quality, to trace Kiefer’s creative evolution and reveal as fully as possible his works’ scope and power.
Lovely…Leads the reader through the dense symbolism and repeated imagery of Kiefer's work.
