Anselm Kiefer: The Woodcuts

£135.00

Product description

This rare, large-format hardback catalogue was published on the occasion of the exhibition entitled 'Anselm Kiefer: The Woodcuts' at the Albertina, Vienna from 18 March to 19 June 2016. There are 109 illustrations, a list of works, a biography and bibliography. The volume was edited by Antonia Hoerschelmann and there is a preface by Klaus Albrecht Schroder. No dustjacket was issued. The pictorial boards are very slightly bumped at the corners and there is a small pencil mark on pahe 49, but otherwise the volume is in a very good condition.  

Unlike hardly any other contemporary German artist, Anselm Kiefer (born 1945) has rendered the horrors of recent history and created profound works of art with mythological, religious, and philosophical themes. Subtle layers that alternately cover as well as uncover one another; that contain the knowledge of the inevitable transformation and dissolution of all matter monumental and material-related at once. All of these fundamental elements that also inform his woodcuts. The catalogue accompanying the retrospective of the same name at the Albertina now thoroughly deals with these for the first time. More than thirty-five major works comprise the most important cycles and thematic groups and demonstrate the variety to be discovered: from the first works also in the traditional book format and the fascinating large-format works on the theme Brunhilde: Grane, to the Ways of Worldly Wisdom: Arminius s Battle and the ensemble of Rhine woodcuts.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
