His approach revived the interest in three-dimensional, multi-layered canvases , inspiring future generations of artists to adopt and freely experiment with new materials.
What at the first glance seemed like simple landscape, actually was a very complex depiction of morbid past of one nation and its regime. These compositions had an impact on artists who explore the theme of war and memory.
It is as also a part of several public collections, including the Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, the Museum of Modern Art and Solomon R.
Guggenheim Museum in New York, Detroit Institute of Arts, The Tate Modern, London, The Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and the Albertina in Vienna  , among the others.

Some critics missed the irony of the title, German Spiritual Heroes , and thought the work encouraged a pervasive fascination with German culture, while omitting the legacy of the nation's brutality.
Others saw it as a meditative reflection on German history and the country's reaction to its recent past. This motif of the interior was a recurring subject throughout Kiefer's work of the s, as in his series of Attic Paintings.
Much like Vincent van Gogh's portraits of his bedroom, these interiors reflect the psyche of the artist and the nation, imbuing the spectator with a distinct emotional response.
Through the ominous depiction of the empty room, the painting engenders an unsettling feeling in the viewer, suggesting that something is amiss.
As with the Occupations series, Kiefer sought to break the silence regarding the Holocaust to encourage regeneration and growth beyond it, thus the presentation here of an empty room waiting to be filled with new heroes.
While Kiefer is considered one of the most important artists to deal with this taboo subject matter, he belonged to a wider milieu of postwar German intellectuals who struggled to transcend their country's shameful past.
Kiefer's practice of directly appropriating Nazi themes, philosophies, and slogans, however, was contentious. As scholar Andreas Huyssen notes, for German critics, "Kiefer's deliberate strategy of opening a Pandora's box of fascist and nationalistic imagery amounted to a kind of original sin of the post-Auschwitz era.
Kiefer has stated that "our stories begin in the forest," so it is not surprising that forests are a recurring subject matter in his work.
The theme is rich with meaning for the artist, particularly as a representation of German national identity as far back as the Teutonic era. It is this period that Varus references: the battle in the Teutoburg Forest, where in the year 9 BCE Hermann Arminius , a deserter from the Roman army, in alliance with his native Germanic peoples, wiped out the Romans under the command of Varus, who fell on his sword after watching his men be massacred.
The humiliating defeat was described by Tacitus in Annales , whose Germanica was rediscovered in the 15 th century and came to form a bedrock of German identity as a people of superior virtue with an almost mythical bond to their land, a people who defeat those corrupted by cosmopolitanism.
The names of some of those involved in the battle are written on the canvas, including Arminius and his wife Thusnelda, along with other names from German history and literature, all of whom played a role in the development of German national identity.
The names of Friedrich Holderlin, Friedrich Klopstock, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, and Friedrich Schleiermacher are written in the branches of the trees as if to create a hall of fame.
Martin Luther, Otto von Bismarck, Adolf Hitler, and others had looked to the ancient Hermann as a role model.
In the s, Anselm Kiefer began to create work about other civilizations, and introduce the theme of alchemy. Here, these bookcases are named after the rivers Tigris and Euphrates, which connect to Mesopotamia Zweistromland in German, literally meaning the land of two rivers.
In addition, The High Priestess is a powerful tarot card used to divine the future. Then I found out in alchemy, it plays a big role. So books are symbols of civilization, and in The High Priestess, many of them are sealed shut in heavy-weighing lead.

In , at Galerie am Kaiserplatz, Karlsruhe, he presented his first single exhibition "Besetzungen Occupations " with a series of photographs about controversial political actions.
Kiefer is best known for his paintings, which have grown increasingly large in scale with additions of lead, broken glass, and dried flowers or plants, resulting in encrusted surfaces and thick layers of impasto.
By , while studying informally under Joseph Beuys at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf , his stylistic leanings resembled Georg Baselitz 's approach. He subsequently studied at art academies in Freiburg , Karlsruhe , and Dusseldorf.
These paintings used garish, sombre colours and coarse, naive drawing, but they did achieve powerful effects owing to their imaginative allusions to Nazism.
In the s he also painted a series of landscape vistas that capture the rutted and sombre look of the German countryside and that use linear perspective with great dramatic effect.
