ALBERT P. ALBANO


ABSTRACT—Salient aspects of the artwork of Anselm Kiefer are reported and discussed based on the artist's expressed artistic intentions, social concerns, and technique and use of materials for the fabrication of artworks. Many of the sources for the art's thematic content are identified and described by the artist. The significance of this information is contextualized in light of the artwork's physical makeup and its relationship to long-term preservation.
