Format: Hardcover
These are the basis of every one of Nerdrum's paintings. One cannot tell if the painting was done from the drawing or if the drawing was done from the painting. This is an excellent illustration of the long planning and consideration some artists go through before beginning a painting. It shows just one of the many steps Nerdrum goes through, capturing one of the pieces which go into a piece of art which usually would go into the trash. The drawings are usually overlooked, and most beginning painters believe a painting can be started without preperation. This shows how much consideration to EVERY detail is given.
I would have liked to have seen more of the intermediate steps before the finalized drawing, and just more drawings in general. I thought the book was a bit on the short side, but otherwise, this is a fabulous book

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Pablo on June 22, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is an amazing book that gives insite to the painstaking process of painting in the classical manner. Nerdrum only completes about 7-8 painting a year, but his work is some of the most impressive art of this century. This book is a collection of drawings that were done as preliminary studies for paintings. It offers an incredible insight to the process of developing a brilliant work of art, from a modern master. The book was originally published as a catalog that accompanied a tour of these collected works. The museums that exhibited this collection were smaller(ie not nationally known)museums in the mid-west. The photo reproductions are so crisp that you can see every stroke and blend of the charcoal, as well as the lines where the pieces of paper were hinged together to complete these rather large scale drawings. This book is a must have reference for any serious art student who aspires to master the classical techniques of drawing/painting. It is an extremely rare find as according to the inside cover, only 2000 copies were printed. If you can find one, it is worth every penny. An amazing compilation of works from an amazing modern master artist.

Odd Nerdrum is an incredible painter. You cannot possibly make ANY judgements about his work without seeing some of his originals!

He has earned his place in the art history already, and books like this are useful in reminding you of the the original shock of seeing his work...The shock of recognition I would say!
