Description

"A world full of color," said Friedensreich Hundertwasser, "is synonymous with paradise." With his demonstrations and actions, his manifestos for nature, for more human-oriented architecture, and for the improvement of the quality of life and living conditions, Friedensreich Hundertwasser was one of the most fascinating artists of the 20th century. He became a symbolic figure, not only as a painter but also as an architect, ecologist, and philosopher, in particular for all those who are searching for a life tuned to the natural and the human.This standard edition consists of the first volume of TASCHEN's limited edition Friedensreich Hundertwasser 1928-2000, and offers a comprehensive presentation of Hundertwasser's work and life, with a detailed text by Hundertwasser's longtime friend Wieland Schmied.
