PROVENANCE: Private collection Switzerland.

"Painting being discussed in the realm of color is never happening. Interestingly, color is an element in painting that has always been discussed – from the 17th century on, in the big academies in Paris – as the female, less stable, less clear and less intelligent element of painting, whereas the concept, the line, the drawing was seen as the male, the clear, the progressive and intelligent part of the artwork. I think that I am dealing with this heritage in an interesting way because color is such an important spatial feature in my work."
Katharina Grosse, quote from: Katharina Grosse. Painting with Color, Art21 Extended Play (video on Youtube, released on April 17, 2015).
