Anselm Kiefer's monumental body of work occupies a fascinating place in the canon of late 20th Century art.
Born in 1945, a son of post-fascist Germany, he initially embarrassed his country through his excavations of the nation’s recent past when he photographed himself performing Nazi salutes in the landscape.
Kiefer came to prominence in 1980 when he represented his country in the Venice Biennale. His work is now held in museums and private collections internationally. Recent exhibitions include a retrospective at the Guggenheim Bilbao and Monumenta (2007) at the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2008 the Louvre commissioned a painting for their permanent collection and Kiefer was awarded the Friedenspreis des Deutschen Buchhandels in Germany. His creation at La Ribaute represents his most ambitious work to date in the second half of his career.
