Anselm Kiefer's Biography

Anselm Kiefer is a German painter and sculptor who was born in 1945. He is widely considered to be the leading figure in Neo-expressionism, a movement that developed in Germany during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Kiefer's work is characterized by its use of dark colors and its exploration of myth and history. His paintings often depict themes of war, religion, and death, while his sculptures frequently feature large-scale installations of mixed media. Kiefer's work has been widely exhibited, and he has had solo exhibitions in museums around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Louvre in Paris, and the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg.
