UntitledZoomEdition Gerd HatjePer KirkebyUntitled


This collection of essays was published on the occasion of the seventieth birthday of Danish painter, sculptor, author, filmmaker, and architect Per Kirkeby. For over thirty years, Siegfried Gohr, former director of a number of museums and currently professor at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf, has intensely examined Kirkeby’s multifaceted oeuvre.

Gohr became acquainted with the artist and his works in the seventies, and in 1987 he organized a retrospective of Kirkeby’s work atCologne’s Ludwig Museum . This volume assembles eleven of Gohr’s insightful texts on the artist’s painterly, sculptural, and architectural work. (English edition ISBN 978-3-7757-2321-3).

For our Collector’s Edition the artist has sketched small, original drawings directly onto the endpapers of a few of the books. The fascinating pencil sketches seem to capture impressions and still lifes from the studio environment, or formulate early preliminary sketches for larger works. We are very pleased to be able to offer these exciting, delightful “finger exercises” from the hand of a master.

We would be happy to send you a PDF showing all available copies of this edition (collectorseditions@hatjecantz.de).
