Published by La Fábrica/Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
Text by Bloum Cardenas, Camille Morineau, Catherine Francblin, et al.

This gorgeous volume offers the most complete overview in print of the oeuvre of Niki de Saint Phalle, one of the most influential and popular artists of the postwar period. The French-American artist was educated according to the social codes of upper-class New York society, but boldly rejected the expectations of her family to instead choose a career in art. Moving to Paris in the 1960s, she befriended the Nouveau Réaliste artists Martial Raysse, Daniel Spoerri and Jean Tinguely, creating her famous Shooting Paintings, the Nanas (brightly chromatic biomorphic sculptures of female archetypes), as well as experimental films, decors and costumes for ballet productions and collaborations with Tinguely, Robert Rauschenberg and others. Saint Phalle was adept at using the media to consolidate her public image, and soon became an icon of the 1960s art scene, attaining a broad cultural profile that was furthered by her numerous public art projects, including the Tarot Garden in Tuscany and the Stravinsky Fountain in Paris. This superbly produced publication—which features a die-cut cover through which Saint Phalle peers, aiming her gun—presents her works in all media, along with ephemera and archival photographs documenting her rich career and life.
Niki de Saint Phalle (1930?2002) was born near Paris and moved to the US in 1933. During her teen years Saint Phalle was a fashion model and appeared on the cover of Life in 1949 and, three years later, on the cover of French Vogue. At 18 Saint Phalle eloped with author Harry Mathews and moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, and later to Paris, where she exhibited at the Alexander Iolas Gallery. In 1971 Saint Phalle married Jean Tinguely, and throughout that decade created the public sculptures and parks for which she became celebrated. Saint Phalle died of emphysema in California in May 2002.

La Grotte

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Niki de Saint Phalle. Edited by Ulrich Krempel. Text by Ronald Clark, Pierre Lejeune.

The Herrenhausen Gardens in Hanover are among the most beautiful parks in Germany. Their baroque section, the Grosser Garden, was begun in 1666 and constitutes one of the most important baroque grounds in Europe. The northwestern part of this floral treasure houses a Grotto, built in 1676, comprised of three rooms, originally decorated with mussels, crystals, glass and minerals, which served as a place of enchantment and as a cool retreat on hot days. Sadly, the Grotto's decorations were removed as early as the eighteenth century, and the building became nothing but a storeroom. Restored for Expo 2000, the inside of the grotto was newly designed according to plans by Niki de Saint Phalle, a project that turned out to be the last completed by the artist, who died in the spring of 2002. The Grotto's octagonal middle room and two other rooms were splendidly decorated with mosaics made from colored glass and mirrors, and with pebbles and numerous painted sculptures made of fiberglass. The spiral-shaped arrangement of ornaments around the column in the entrance hall is meant to symbolize spirituality, the mirrored western room signifies day and life, and the blue eastern room represents night and the cosmos.
