Hirmer Verlag published a new book during the summer. Ann Wolff. The early drawings – Frühe Zeichnungen. Written by Petra Giloy-Hirtz & Eva-Maria Fahrner-Tutsekand.
Ann Wolff donated 130 works from the 1980s to Herausgegeben von Alexander Tutsek-Stiftung and a selection of 60 drawings is now published in this beautiful book. The works, executed in pencil on paper, focus on a female figure seen in reflections and duplications, sometimes surreal and whimsical in connection with animals and intermediate beings, and sometimes with a man or a child: dream worlds, pictures of the subconscious, often inspired by fairy tales. The pictures unfold their narrative potential as investigations of the female self in the social milieu of an age characterised by feminist movements and discussions regarding the relationship between the sexes.
