Anselm Kiefer: Transition from Cool to Warm

Regular price Regular price $120

This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Anselm Kiefer: Transition from Cool to Warm at Gagosian, West 21st Street, New York. Central to the publication are more than forty watercolors made between 2012 and 2016, marking Kiefer’s return to the medium after forty years. The exhibition also featured nine monumental landscape paintings and over forty unique artist’s books, their pages painted with gesso to mimic marble. In this selection of books, the sequences of narrative information and visual effects evoke the fragile endurance of the sacred and the spiritual through the female figures depicted on the marbled pages. The publication features new essays by novelist Karl Ove Knausgård and art historian James Lawrence, along with an interview with the artist by art journalist Louisa Buck.
