Description - Niki de Saint Phalle by the Sea by Joost Bergman
The Nanas created by French sculptor Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) are world famous. These colourful, exuberantly happy female figures who go through life dancing, leaping and buzzing with energy have become an iconic image of woman. With controversial pieces like her 'shooting pictures', Niki de Saint Phalle also played a leading role in the European 'Nouveaux Realisme' movement, and her monumental sculptures adorn public spaces in many towns and cities. Her rotund Nanas with their self-confident, independent attitude remain as relevant today as they were when they were first created. Text in English and Dutch. 140 colour, 12 b/w images
