As she strove to express subjective bodily experience, and explore the boundaries between the individual and the world, Austrian artist Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) developed a singular aesthetic, with human figures always at the center of her boldly expressive, brightly colored oil paintings. Now, her life’s work is the subject of a book that spans her prolific career. Lassnig worked well into her 90s, producing poignant testimonies of the passing of time. Alongside her signature self-portraits, the book features her paintings of bodies morphed with objects and mechanical devices, examples of Lassnig’s still lifes, and rarely seen paintings triggered by political events. With insightful essays from leading scholars, this important publication reveals an artist whose work continues to shock, move, and inspire.
