Questions? What questions?
Some of the most beautiful sculptural works by Olaf Metzel have always incited scandal, for example the figure of a naked woman with a headscarf entitled »Turkish Delight«. The fact that these publically oppugned sculptures are predicated upon an impressive series of drawings is scarcely ever acknowledged. Alongside salient sculptural works and new installations, the majority of this book has, therefore, been devoted to Olaf Metzel’s drawings, which are not only being afforded a broader arena here for the first time, but have also undergone a thorough reappraisal.
