Stillleben mit Bronzekopf, Fernglas und Brot. 2013.
Oil on canvas.
Monogrammed and dated in upper right. Verso of the canvas signed and dated "16.8.2013". 60 x 80 cm (23.6 x 31.4 in).
The bronze head is a portrait of Dietrich Wildung, longtime director of the Egyptian Museum in Berlin, which Johannes Grützke also made. A cast of this work is in possession of the 'Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlung'. The great dynamic and diversity of Grützke's creation can be felt on two levels in this work, on the one hand in painting and in sculpting on the other. [EH].

The work is registered in Johannes Grützke's hand-written work book. We are grateful to Mr Valentin Müller, Ladengalerie Berlin, for his kind support in cataloging this lot.

PROVENANCE: Acquired from the artist by the previous owner.
