This week’s competition prize is Anselm Kiefer, by Richard Davey, Kathleen Soriano and Christian Weikop (£48, Royal Academy of Arts)

Born in Germany in 1945, Anselm Kiefer is one of the most important artists of his generation. His works – encompassing and transcending painting, sculpture, photography and installation – are epic in both scale and subject-matter. Kiefer wrestles with the darkness of German history, unearthing the taboos that underlie the collective past and interweaving them with Teutonic mythology, cosmology and meditations on the nature of belief. This volume accompanies a major retrospective of Kiefer’s works at the Royal Academy of Arts which includes a number of new works especially made for the exhibition and explores the themes that run through Kiefer’s oeuvre, from the complex relationship between art and spirituality to the influence of German woodcuts and folklore.

For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 24 October 2014.

Which poet inspired Anselm Kiefer’s Margarethe (1981)?

This competition closes at midday on 24 October 2014
