Dinner with Mr Darcy - Recipes inspired by the novels and letters of Jane Austen
- Food is an important theme in Jane Austen's novels - it is used as a commodity for showing off, as a way of showing kindliness among neighbours, as part of the dynamics of family life, and - of course - for comic effect.
In this superbly illustrated volume, Danièle Cohn, who has worked alongside Anselm Kiefer for many years, explains the central role the artists studios play in his artistic process. She reveals how Kiefers ateliers their layout and organization, and their location are intrinsic to his work as a painter and sculptor. The reader is taken on an exploration of Kiefers ateliers around the world, from the attic of a former school and a disused brickyard in Germany, via ateliers in the rural south of France and the urban setting of the Marais in Paris, to his current studio in Croissy-Beaubourg on the outskirts of the capital. Throughout, we discover how Anselm Kiefers work spaces have influenced his art.
