Books By Author Simon Schama

Remembered Light by Simon Schama Remembered Light, Hardback (October 2016)

A look inside the studio of leading contemporary artist Cy Twombly, as documented by renowned photographer Sally Mann

Anselm Kiefer by Simon Schama Anselm Kiefer, Hardback (September 2014)

Encompassing and transcending painting, sculpture, photography and installation are epic in both scale and subject-matter; in them Kiefer wrestles with the darkness of German history, unearthing the taboos that underlie the collective past and interweaving them with Teutonic mythology, cosmology and meditations on the nature of belief.
