I have been a Kiefer fan for decades. I’m not going to give a history but he’s a painter you should be familiar with. His work has always been ‘about’ Germany and German history and has, for the most part, always been somber, epic in scale and pretty overwhelming – much like this:
But his new show at Gagosian in NYC is a real surprise – and I do love to be surprised.
I wish I could see it in person.
