Anselm Kiefer: heaven and earth
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, in association with Prestel, 2005 - Art - 186 pages
A retrospective volume of Anselm Kiefer's work, this catalog addresses the artist's entire career through the lens of one compelling theme. From his earliest sculptures to his recent highly textured paintings, Anselm Kiefer has woven themes of heaven and earth into his work, exploring the polarities of these ideas while struggling to define the transcendent quality that places art squarely in between. Destruction and rebirth, glory and shame, sin and redemption all figure largely in Kiefer's often controversial depictions of Germany's physical and cultural landscape. This catalog of more than sixty reproductions includes Kiefer's first work, Heaven, as well as numerous other rare early works. It features watercolors produced specifically for the publication as well as an interview with the artist.

Anselm Kiefer: heaven and earthUser Review - Book Verdict
Published to complement a traveling exhibition on view at the Modern Art Museum of Forth Worth through January 2006, this catalog offers a fascinating and enjoyably cerebral approach to German artist Anselm Kiefer's (b. 1945) powerful, philosophical productions. In his impressive foreword and subsequent interview with Kiefer, Auping (Howard Hodgkin: Paintings ) traces Kiefer's influences and explains the symbolic significance of his materials, process, and iconography. Auping's Kiefer navigates the grim facts of history by way of alchemical metaphor and artistically expresses his own sense of metaphysical suspension, wherein humankind seeks purpose and redemption but encounters only confrontation with the unpleasant history that has shaped the present. Each plate is accompanied by further crucial insights into Kiefer's iconography and meaning. With near page-for-page reproductions of his Heaven and Earth sketchbook, watercolors, and large-scale paintings, this catalog of more than 100 illustrations provides a fluent continuum of Kiefer's ideas and imagery. An excellent complement to Peter Nisbet's Anselm Kiefer: The Heavenly Palaces, Merkabah and Mark Rosenthal's Anselm Kiefer monograph; highly recommended for collections focusing on modern and contemporary art. - Savannah Schroll, formerly with Smithsonian Inst, Libs., Washington, DC
Review: Anselm Kiefer Heaven and EarthUser Review - Travis - Goodreads
I worked through this book mostly for the pictures. Kiefer is unparalleled in the art world, and Heaven and Earth provides a compelling theoretical and historical backdrop for his art. This is a must-read for any contemporary art enthusiasts. Read full review
