From Frottage to Photo Painting
Few have written more extensively and comprehensively about modern art than Werner Spies. The spontaneous enthusiasm engendered by a particular work of art resonates in his words and is directly conveyed to the reader. Invariably infectious, such effervescence makes for a very personal history of art. In this new volume, the German artists – including Neo Rauch, Jörg Immendorf, Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter and Rebecca Horn – take centre-stage. Featuring enlightening excursions into the closely affiliated worlds of literature, ethnology, and cinema, Spies always guarantees a highly enjoyable reading experience that will make up for all the exhibitions you may have missed!
