This monumental publication on the artist Jannis Kounellis covers the entirety of his career from the late 1950s thorugh the 1990s. Kounellis was a co-founder of the Italian movement Arte Povera and used a variety of materials, organic (coffee, coal), and inorganic (steel plates, textiles), to create his sculptural works, which speak to basic and elemental themes like heat, creation, decay, endurance, and more. 385 illustrations

Highly recommended research book.


This book needs several reads. The writer of the essay in the book had a difficult style of writing to follow, very long winded. After reading a very long paragraph you finally figure out what she is trying to say. Overall it has been an excellent research resource despite the writing style. I was unfortunately disappointed that the images of the artworks were in black and white. This makes it very difficult to analyse an artwork. Cons aside, its a great book.
