Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser (1928–2000), born Friedrich Stowasser, became one of the best-known contemporary artists in his native Austria and gained world renown by the end of the 20th century.
Hundertwasser was an incredibly energetic and versatile artist, celebrated for his revolutionary architecture, colourful paintings, original graphic works, tapestries, posters, prints and stamps. He was also noted for his philosophical and theoretical writings: his politics were the politics of aesthetics, beauty and the love of nature.
This book was produced in cooperation with the Hundertwasser Estate in Vienna.
