• Ingenious subversive drawing with a socio-political notion. • Caricature with a grotesque background. • This collage is an ironic comment of a political journalistic activity. • In the early 1960s Polke and Richter were among the founders of "Capitalistic Realism“. • Polke ironizes the quest for style and meaning in contrast to the then prevailing principles of Informalism.
We are grateful to Michael Trier for his kind support in cataloging this lot.
