• Large-size work in a painting-like appearance and in particularly strong colors. • An expression of the artist's unmistakable pictorial language. • In the 1960s Horst Antes began to develop his characteristic figure of the "Kopffüßler" (Head Footer) which the led to the artist's work group of the reduced Head. • Up until today the artist uses the oversized heads to address the intellectual potential of man.
