Title: Kienholz: 'The Hoerengracht'
Description: National Gallery, 2009. First Edition, Softcover. Fine Condition. 9781857094534 Almost as new, very lightly edgeworn covers, clean bright contents. 'The Hoerengracht' (1983-88) is an installation artwork by Ed Kienholz (American, 1927-1994) and his wife, Nancy Reddin Kienholz. This tableau - a surprising sight in the National Gallery - is a walk-through evocation of Amsterdam's red-light district, with glowing windows and claustrophobic streets. With its statements on morality, vanitas and composition of secret spaces and receding views, 'The Hoerengracht' resonates powerfully with painting by Dutch masters of the 17th century. The work was the last major piece made by the Kienholzes before Ed died and remains a major reference point for contemporary artists such as Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy and Damien Hirst. The generously illustrated catalogue positions 'The Hoerengracht' and Kienholz in a new perspective. 55 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Art & Design; ISBN/EAN: 9781857094534. Inventory No: dscf7640.
