Throughout a diverse 40-year career, Austrian artist Walter Pichler (1936–2012) was persistently—almost conservatively—fascinated by the human figure, an unusual theme for a member of the avant-garde. Now for the first time, this deeply personal work has been published. Pichler exhibited his primarily architectural and sculptural installations at venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, Documenta IV and the Venice Biennale. Though Pichler’s oeuvre traversed a variety of themes, the body and its sensibilities remained central to the artist, whether through rough figure sketches or his trademark futurist helmets, which become materially and spiritually tangible as states of consciousness. This catalog, devoted to Pichler’s drawing, includes texts from art historian Christian Reeder and MoMA curator Stephanie Weber.
