Niki de Saint Phalle (1930–2002) was one of the most unconventional artists of twentieth century. Her work eludes art-historical definition, ranging from oil paintings in the fifties to her tirs and expressive assemblages of junk. Her signature Nanas, small figurines made from wool, fabric, and papier-mâché, eventually grew into imposing and potentially ominous sculptures. Niki de Saint Phalle was not just a sculptor and a painter; her large-scale creations—posted internationally from Israel to California—transcend the boundaries between architecture and sculpture.

Forty years of Niki de Saint Phalle's artistic development are documented in detail in this comprehensive volume. It includes a complete biography, a list of exhibitions, an essay by Pontus Hultén, and more than 150 pages of revealing photographs.
