Whether you are an ardent follower of this fascinating artist, or just learning about her life and work, this lively volume offers an in-depth portrait of Niki de Saint Phalle's world, turbulent life and extraordinary art. Niki de Saint Phalle's biography reads like a bestselling novel: a difficult education, early fame as a fashion model, and family rebellion. Her earliest works, known as 'shooting' paintings, were executed with a rifle and paint-filled bullets. She went on to explore women's changing identities through papier-mache figures. As her reputation grew, so did her works. Her larger-than-life 'Nanas' could be entered and viewed from within. She created sculpture parks in Israel, Italy and California. Her Stravinsky fountain graces the Pompidou in Paris. Niki de Saint Phalle also created hundreds of sculptures and graphic works. She worked tirelessly for women and the prevention and cure of AIDS. This book introduces readers to Niki's art and life in a cohesive and entertaining series of chapters that include beautiful reproductions of her pieces, photographs from her life in and outside of the studio, and historical background that gives insight into the artist's career choices and themes. As lively as the life it reveals, this volume is a superb entree into the world of one of history's most intriguing and courageous artists.
