Main Description
A comprehensive collection of Adrian Schiess' exquisite watercolours.
Main Description
For the first time, Swiss artist Adrian Schiess presents various types of watercolors in this richly illustrated catalog. Schiess can be considered one of the most important contemporary painters. He has gained international recognition with his "flat works"-painted hardboards he layed out at the Venice Biennial (1990) and at the documenta in Kassel (1992). For 20 years, he has simultaneously been working on these fragile works on paper, which possess an exceptional poetic quality.
