Art works: British and German contemporary art 1960-2000
Over the last forty years, the work produced by British and German artists, from Gerhard Richter and David Hockney to Damien Hirst, has defined the Zeitgeist with unprecedented variety and originality of expression. Art Works offers a unique, fully illustrated survey of contemporary works by such influential British and German artists as Francis Bacon, Anish Kapoor, Anthony Caro, Rachel Whiteread, Georg Baselitz, and Frank Auerbach. Drawn from one of the most comprehensive collections of contemporary art, these works have remained unseen in America until now. Specially commissioned artists' statements and a historical overview offer an intriguing insight into the art of today.
