STRONG WOMEN FOR ART: IN CONVERSATION WITH ANNA LENZ. Ed. by Anna Lenz. Hirmer Verlag, Munich, 2013. Distributed in the U.S.A. by University of Chicago Press. 296 pp. with 154 ills. (137 col.). 24 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783777421490 In English.
Publisher's description: Who are the spouses and lifelong partners of important contemporary artists? What attitudes and actions characterize the lives of these fascinating companions, many of whom are influential artists or arts professionals in their own right? To begin to offer an answer to this question, longtime art collector Anna Lenz conducted twenty interviews with the life partners and wives of well-known contemporary artists, including, among many others, Elizabeth Goldring-Piene, wife of German multimedia artist Otto Piene; Karin Girke, widow to the late painter Raimund Girke; Rotraut Klein-Moquay, artist and wife of Yves Klein; and art historian and critic Antje von Graevenitz, wife of op-artist and cofounder of the New Tendency movement Gerhard von Graevenitz. With photographs by Roswitha Pross, the interviews are presented here, offering insight into the womens' biographies and their lives with the artists. With great openness, Lenz's interview subjects speak of their families, life plans, and their own professional trajectories, as well as their initial meetings and long-term relationships with the artists. Together, the interviews offer an insightful--and highly personal--piece of contemporary art history.
