MARKUS LÜPERTZ
Rückenakt
19 May through 1 July 2005
UPPER EAST SIDE, NEW YORK
 

One of the most important German painters of his generation, Markus Lüpertz focuses in this series on painting pictorial motifs. Drawing from his imagination, each individual canvas reveals a general investigation by the artist into the opposition between abstraction and figuration. This approach is at the core of Lüpertz’s creative process, one that continues to influence and inspire a younger generation of German painters today.
