(1000 items available)
When Neo Rauch was a student of Arno Rink's at the Hochschule fur Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig, Germany was still a divided country. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, his large, cryptic paintings took the art world by storm and Rauch became a trailblazer for the New Leipzig School, as well as its most famous representative. His paintings added elements of Pop Art, comics, and advertising graphics to figural painting.This title is a survey of Rauch's multifaceted work. It begins with his first solo show in 1993 at the renowned Galerie EIGEN + ART in Leipzig and traces in detail the developments in his oeuvre up to the present day, using paintings from prominent international collections as examples. Accompanying essays by well-known curators and art historians provide fundamental insights into Rauch's complex body of work.
