Markus Lüpertz

Until 6 June 2010

Markus Lüpertz, born in 1941, has been one of Germany’s most important contemporary artists on the international scene for quite some time now. The presentation focuses on central themes of his oeuvre and, with its retrospective approach, offers a fascinating introduction into the creative process pursued by the painter, graphic artist, and sculptor: it highlights his “German Motifs,” his nudes, and his exploration of subjects from the canon of classical art and cultural history in a representative selection of about 100 works and seven bozzetti for the sculpture Daphne (2002–2005). Marking key positions in Markus Lüpertz’s oeuvre, about fifteen hitherto rarely presented monumental works on cardboard dating from the 1960s and after constitute the core of the exhibition. Spanning to current work groups, the show especially considers the artist’s cross-media principle of composition.
