Anselm Kiefer at Oriel Mostyn
Other venues: Display
3 December 2011 – 11 March 2012

ARTIST ROOMS on Tour with The Art Fund supported by the Scottish Government is an inspired partnership that will fulfil the vision for this extraordinary collection: that it should be shared across the UK.

Oriel Mostyn shows the work of Anselm Kiefer. A key figure in European post-war culture, Anselm Kiefer’s art derives from his great awareness of history, theology, mythology, literature and philosophy, and his exploration of a range of materials such as lead, concrete, straw, clay, flowers and seeds.
