Kiefer: Provocations at the Met Breur
Somehow I neglected to post images from two exceptional exhibitions I visited last March at the Met Breur. Provocations included over thirty works on paper by the extraordinary Anselm Kiefer. Whether he's working on paper, cutting a woodblock or making a watercolor painting the Kiefer is physical, visceral and gut-wrenching.
