Born in Bombay in 1954, London-based sculptor Anish Kapoor ranks among the leading exponents of New British Sculpture. Since the seventies, his works have featured in exhibitions all over the world, and even his early sculptures—artfully shaped mounds of brightly colored powder pigment—established him as the author of an exceptionally varied oeuvre embracing materials as diverse as stone, steel, and glass. What is remarkable about the poetically abstract works by this Turner Prize–winning artist is their spirituality and transcendence, both of which have their roots in Kapoor’s native India.

This volume presents three large works made of wax, unlike any he had previously produced, which the sculptor created for the exhibition of the same name at the MAK in Vienna . It documents them in an extensive section of photographs.

Kapoor’s works in wax from 1992 to the present and his print work from 1987 onward are also published here together for the first time, enabling a closer exploration of the interplay between painting and sculpture in Kapoor’s oeuvre. This comprehensive survey is supplemented by essays that examine the artist’s work from the perspectives of art and cultural history.
