Summary "This is the first book to cover the great resurgence that has occurred in Europe and America in the last ten years.'New Painting' now dominates contemporary art in its various guises: neo-expressionism, pattern-painting, 'anachronistic' painting 'post-graffitti'. This book clearly outlines the different aspects of this complex phenomenon: the return to national traditions, the re-cycling of advertising media, the various regional schools of Germany, the use of such unorthodox materials as antlers, straw, lead and even porridge mixed into the paint. The best known of these artists, Baselitz, Clemente, Fetting, Kiefer, Paladino, Salle, Schnabel and others, with their unique use of myth, style and materials are all examined in detail."--BOOK JACKET
