“Anselm Kiefer” at the Royal Academy of Arts in London.
The Royal Academy of Arts presents the first retrospective of calibre in the United Kingdom with this artist, considered to be one of the most important of his generation.
Kiefer’s fascination with history and works of former artistic masters appears through each of his subjects. From cultural myths born from folklore in the New and Old Testaments, the masterpieces of Anselm Kiefer confront dark moments in German history and lean on the complex relations between art and spirituality. The manner in which he uses materials such as clay, ash, earth, lead and dried flowers add a touch of symbolism and depth to this work.
Until 14th December.
