Through the 1990s and early 2000s, Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere (b. 1964) made life-size, cast wax sculptures of bodies at rest and in motion, in agony and in ecstasy. She became a star of the contemporary art world due largely to these beautiful, unsettling sculptures that convey, at turns, the passion and the frailty of life. In 2013, her work shifted dramatically; she moved away from figurative work in an effort to expand the scope of her representation of pathos and vulnerability. She also returned to blankets, a motif of her early work—though, where these were once presented intact, they now appear distressed and rotting. Featuring 150 illustrations, this book offers a comprehensive presentation of her work since 2014, which includes not only sculpture but installation work and drawings.

Stijn Huijts is an art historian, critic, and the chief executive officer and director of the Bonnefantenmuseum in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
