Works on Paper and Artists’ Books from the Speck Collection
An extensive catalog from the unique and extraordinary collection of works on paper assembled over more than forty years by the Cologne-based physician Reiner Speck. The artists’ names gathered here form a veritable who’s who of modern and contemporary art history, exploring the relationship between word and image. Cy Twombly’s works on paper are spectacular and dense, despite their small formats; works by Sigmar Polke, Bruce Nauman, Gunther Forg, Martin Kippenberger and others create a brilliantly assembled grouping. Speck contributes an essay on his collection, as do several scholars and curators, notably Renate Goldmann. A beautifully edited and crisply produced monograph on one of the most personal collections of our time.
