Anselm Kiefer : Salt of the Earth, Hardback Book

Anselm Kiefer : Salt of the Earth Hardback

Edited by Germano Celant


This is 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.
