Born in Germany in 1945, Anselm Kiefer is one of Europe's most esteemed expressionistic painters, known for his exploration of the deep, mythological currents that guide Western history. This catalogue reproduces what is perhaps the most significant project that Kiefer has presented in the United States in 20 years. Called "magnificent," and "powerful" and by London's Daily Telegraph, Velimir Chlebnikov is a monumental suite of 30 new paintings housed inside a steel pavilion designed by the artist. Made in tribute to the visionary Russian avant-garde philosopher Velimir Chlebnikov (1885-1922), the works are inspired by Chlebnikov's writings--in particular, his esoteric theories about the forces that cause human conflict. Featuring reproductions of the paintings, installation shots and an texts by Harry Philbrick of The Aldrich Museum, this publication is the definitive record of the Chlebnikov project, which is now housed in a private collection and unavailable to the public. Limited stock available.
