"This new monograph presents another facet of Struth's oeuvre, assembling a series of flower photographs produced for a unique project. In 1991, Struth was commissioned to decorate a new hospital in Winterthur, Switzerland. He decided to produce two flower photographs and a landscape for each of the 37 sickrooms. Beautifully reproduced here, these pictures brilliantly and colorfully sunthesize a tradition of landscape photography that includes Edward Weston, Walker Evans and August Sander with the tradition of 19th century flower and landscape painting. Thomas Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf." [the publisher] Includes small scale panels of 2 - 4 color plates showing the photographs used in each room, selected bibliography and exhibition list.

Price: $25.00
