Anselm Kiefer
Five new works 
Since June 21, 2017
Pinakothek der Moderne | Sammlung Moderne Kunst

The Michael & Eleonore Stoffel Foundation has worked in close collaboration with the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen to acquire on behalf of the latter institution five works by Anselm Kiefer. The acquisition marks a milestone in the development of the collection. The works are:

Der Sand aus den Urnen [The Sand from the Urns], 2009
Acrylic, oil, shellac, sand and charcoal on canvas, 280 x 570 cm

OCCUPATIONS, 1969/2011
Black-and-white photograph on lead, sediment of electrolysis, 235 x 425 cm

OCCUPATIONS, 1969/2011
Black-and-white photograph on lead, sediment of electrolysis, 235 x 425 cm

Die 12 Stämme [The 12 Tribes], 2010
Glass, steel, emulsion, acrylic, shellac, cardboard, clay, lead, gold leaf, silver leaf, resin and charcoal, 405 x 147 x 145 cm

Morgenthau, 2016
Glass, metal, steel, acrylic, clay, gold leaf, gauze, plaster, lead, shellac and paint remains, 212 x 120 x 50 cm

The recent acquisitions of five works by Anselm Kiefer significantly expand the institution’s holdings of the artist’s works, which previously consisted solely of three photographs and the painting "Nero malt" (1974), the latter from the Wittelsbacher Ausgleichsfonds (formerly known as the Prince Franz of Bavaria Collection). With the five new accessions, the collection now boasts a representative display of Anselm Kiefer’s art. The artist’s works will go on show alongside comprehensive groups and/or rooms of works by other groundbreaking artists, particularly Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Wolfgang Laib, Sigmar Polke, Arnulf Rainer and Dan Flavin, Donald Judd, and Andy Warhol. The acquisition of this set of works not only enriches the collection in terms of its density and variety, but also further bolsters the Pinakothek der Moderne’s profile on the international stage.
