2. Post War/Contemporary Art
Oil on canvas. 1986
40,5 x 76 cm (15.9 x 29.9 in)
Estimate: € 14.000-18.000
The first spot in this section is occupied by the Dresden artist A.R. Penck. His untitled work was made six years after he had been denaturalized in the GDR and emigrated to West Germany, where he had been acknowledged one of the most important contemporary artists for some time. His themes range from working up the new impressions gathered in the West over private matters and world politics. The oil painting, which stimulates the observer to a close examination through its high symbolist content, has been estimated at € 14.000-18.000.
Slightly below this mark, to be more exact at € 12.000-15.000 is the estimate for a lacquer work by Markus Prachensky, one of the most renowned representatives of the Austrian Informel. The work "Ohne Titel (Montanara)" from 1971, which was seemingly made in a spontaneous and uncontrolled act of creation, is particularly captivating through its intuitively balanced and expressive composition.
Since the spring auction had supplied excellent results with its special section "Art of the New Leipzig School" (sales quota: 80 percent), one can now be thrilled about how works by artists such as Tilo Baumgärtel, Moritz Götze and Franziska Holstein will perform in the October auction.
13/14 Oct. 11 a.m. – 5 p.m.
15-17 Oct. 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
18 Oct. 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
(up to € 20.000)
