About the Author

Anselm Kiefer was born in 1945 in Donaueschingen, Germany. In 1966 he left law studies at the University of Freiburg to study art in Freiburg, Karlsruhe and Dusseldorf. His massive paintings confront twentieth-century German history head on, employing Kiefer's own array of visual symbols to comment on tragic aspects of German history and culture, particularly the Nazi era. Kieferi's work has been exhibited throughout the world in most major museums.
