Meret Oppenheim - Retropspective. "An Enormously Tiny Bit of a Lot"
Scandalous muse, mysterious model, and Surrealist legend Meret Oppenheim (1913–1985) was one of the most unique, far-sighted artists of her epoch. Her artistic oeuvre, which includes painting, sculpture, poetry, drawings, and design objects, constitutes an important contribution to twentieth-century art.
Through art-historical essays and detailed analyses by renowned authors, this publication sheds light on the many aspects of her work, investigating gender-specific issues as well as those directly relating to the works. Also featured are previously unpublished text fragments by Oppenheim, recollections of companions and fellow artists, and an illustrated biography dealing with the life and work of this artistic personality who does not cease to fascinate.
