Odd Nerdrum's ghoulish and haunting images are bound to disturb you. Yet his uncanny talent for realism is so superb, that it is hard not to also be awestruck by his paintings and find yourself lingering in marvel at the power of these confronting images.

Nerdrum's paintings are great inspiration for any artist to study. He has a dexterous ability to paint the human form, the dance of light across skin and the rich colours that dwell in the shadows and folds of flesh. An admirer of Carravagio, he has become a modern master of chiaroscuro, using nocturnal or twilight settings to create an air of apprehended danger. His working methods have traditional rigor. He grinds his own pigments, works from life models, visits Iceland to study its landscape and works for months to perfect some of his large canvases.

The book"Odd Nerdrum: Themes" is the most complete collection of Nerdrum's paintings in circulation. At over 500 pages there is very little writing and a maximum of pages given over to artworks from over 40 years of work. The book is still in print and can be bought at a remarkably good price, unlike earlier books on this artist which have inflated through the roof.

In my view Nerdrum surpasses the ability of most old masters in his realism. It is little surprise he has won acclaim as one of the most collectible contemporary artists in the world. Nerdrum has built up a large body of artwork that is unique, bordering on inexplicable. While he paints with a pungent realism, the imaginary worlds he paints are nightmarish and unrecognisable.

The book starts on conventional ground with reproductions of some of Nerdrum's paintings from the 1960s, including a few studio still life portraits and some impressive paintings of dramas set in the 20th century. But from his earliest days, Nerdrum also began painting post-apocalyptic scenes set in desolate landscapes. The book is packed with these horror-scapes: a tangled mound of naked human dead, a disembowelled man, blind wanderers, a woman being buried alive, naked figures in pain or death throes, abandoned babies. These depraved scenes seem to be set in some kind of dark age, with the inhabitants of Nerdrum's world often wearing leather caps and robes of a medieval fashion. Their dirtied hair is sometimes dreadlocked and they inhabit a barren and uncultivated landscape. Sometimes though, the characters lug rifles, adding another element of illogic into the peculiarity of this misfit world.

Nerdrum does show some a tender moments including series of paintings of mothers and their babies, and couples in embrace. But for the most part his figures look lonely and fearful. Disability and insanity are common conditions in this miserable land of suffering. The frightening artworks defy understanding and this book fails to give any explanation for why this artist puts his talents behind such perturbing work.

A much better book for some background on the artist is Richard Vine's "Odd Nerdrum: Paintings, Sketches and Drawings" (the first Nerdrum book I've bought). If you had to choose between the two I'd pick the former, both for more informative background writing and superior close-up images. But this new book captures the latest five years of the artist's output and is printed in an even larger format than Vine's book.

I wouldn't pretend to understand this disconcerting artwork. But I don't hesitate to extol the genius of Odd Nerdrum's unrivalled skill in painting the human form and his ability to conjure an atmosphere of dramatic foreboding. This is an artist I have to admire inspite of my prejudices towards beautiful and more familiar art. This is an abridged version of my review on my Art Book News blog, at blogspot.

Odd Nerdrum is the most talented artist alive today -- though he feels he's been ostracized by the art community to the point he rejects his work to be called art. His work is kitsch he says (which I find rather silly but apparently it is an art movement). I've yet to come across a painter with such interesting work. As a warning it can be graphic. Nerdrum is not shy about painting the male body, disfigured bodies, and people defecating.

Many of the paintings are masterpieces. What's disappointing is the lack of commentary. Nerdrum says his work hides nothing -- therefore what requires explanation? A lot. His paintings appear to be highly symbolic; for example, the man on the road -- disfigured with guts spilling out -- was actually Andy Warhol and his rejection of the modern art movement. There are other paintings of fathers finding sons, certainly a reference to his own personal life...

overall I could not give this master anything less than 5 stars with a book so very reasonably priced!

This is certainly one hefty tome, 554 pages and weighing in at 9lbs. The book opens with a 16 page story about an journalist "Temp" who has been assigned to a press conference for Odd Nerdrum's latest book. Alas Nerdrum doesn't attend, preferring to allow his art to speak for itself.
Hence "Temp" is pretty much left to his own devices to research the meaning behind Nerdrum's subject matter, imagery, philosophy etc. Much is devoted to Nerdrum turning his back on contemporary art and in-vogue styles, instead preferring the styles of the art greats such as Rembrandt, Sargent, Zorn, Homer, Da Vinci, Titian. Philosophy is touched upon through the teachings of Kant and Goethe.
The story, written by Bjorn Li, provides some very interesting perception in to the world of Nerdrum and his devotion to kitsch.
The remaining 520+ pages of the book are devoted to Nerdrum's art. Li's story might give some insight in to various pieces but ultimately there is still plenty of room for the viewer to provide their own interpretation. Human's wandering barren landscapes, solitary worlds even though they are not alone, amputations, lost limbs are commonplace. An over-riding theme presents itself...nothing is perfect...not humanity, the world in which we live whether it be the philosophical or the physical. Existence is simply bleak, filled with anxiety and unknown.
All of Nerdrums major works are here, in many cases accompanied with detail images, preparatory sketches, notes etc. Paintings are grouped by "Themes" - hence the title which such groupings as "Lack of Light", "Mother and Child", "Loving Couples", "Song and Dance" etc. etc.
The book is a huge addition to any Nerdrum library both physically and contentwise. However it is slightly flawed by the quality of the reproductions. For the most part the images are excellent, colour captured well, discernible brushstrokes (which for me is a huge part of the attraction with both Nerdrum and Rembrandt - their use of impasto). Unfortunately there are a few photos that appear to be slightly out of focus with the resulting blur. Not too many but enough to cause some disppointment.
I've had this book on order since its originally anticipated publication date of late 2006. It is very well priced at approx $55 with extensive colour images. A worthy addition to any Nerdrum library, and certainly lends itself to extensive browsing. If all the images were top notch then I'd give it 5+ stars, however my enthusiasm for it is tempered slightly by some blurred images. Recommended all the same for what it does contain and at such a good price.

Wow. This book is so big that it truly requires a viewing stand - I had trouble holding it on my lap to look at it. But the arm strain was worth it. This is Nerdrum in all his dark, unsettling, ethereal, wonderful beauty. I'm not sure what the price for it is now, but I paid $50 and that's a serious bargain for a book of this quality and depth as it covers most of his works.

Beautiful!

The most important living realistic painting artist following the Old Masters tradition and an excellent book on the print quality.
