Book summary: Coming up on the 70th birthday of Czech master Marcus Lupertz, this handsome, large-format exhibition catalog presents some of his fine drawings, small sculptures and bozetti (sketches or maquettes) from a recent Regensburg show. Last year's comprehensive retrospective in Bonn was devoted to the large-scale sculpture and painting of this internationally lauded pillar of the Modern movement. The works here are some of Lupertz's most beautiful, influenced by classicism and mythology (or reacting against it), featuring small oils, watercolor and striking hand-painted sculptures. In an accompanying text, Andrea Madesta shows how Lupertz is constantly questioning the art that has gone before him, staging himself as a ''force at the heart of creation.''
