His most important achievements after 1945 were the “creative restorations” of buildings in Munich that had been destroyed by war: the Alte Pinakothek, the Basilica of St. Boniface, and the major municipal cemeteries.

Andy Warhol. Drag & Draw

The Unknown Fifties
This book highlights two series of little known drawings from the 1950's, drawings where Andy Warhol first explored the controversial and for him deeply personal subject of drag. His oeuvre during the first decade of his career, before he became the godfather of Pop, has proven to be enormously influential on his life's work, yet so far has not received due attention.

A Muslim, a Christian and a Jew Knocking on Heaven’s Door 2nd Revised Edition
Muslims, Christians and Jews have a great deal in common.

Divine Golden Ingenious

The Golden Ratio as a Theory of Everything?

But how much of this apparent “world formula” is true, and how much of it is myth?
