Overview

Themes is the most comprehensive collection of Odd Nerdrum's works ever published. Its 500 pages are filled with sketches, drawings and studies, along with excellent reproductions of the artist's most important and most recent finished works. A wide selection of close-up details offers the tightest possible view of Nerdrum's brushstrokes, which will be of particular interest to students--those who wish to learn his modern take on the Old Master style just as they would learn from the work of the Old Masters themselves. The selection is the artist's own, divided into 20 chapters devoted to space, nudes, portraits and other topics, and presented chronologically within each chapter to show the development of specific motifs over the course of his career. This structure and the wide range of work present provoke new insights into the central themes in Nerdrum's work, and his treatment of them from first sketches to final canvases. Nerdrum's latest works--more than 40 paintings in all, dating from the last five years--are presented here for the first time. They complete an unprecedented overview of his oeuvre, a must for everyone interested in the how and why behind one of today's most controversial and celebrated painters.
