From vehemently tossed color structures, Horst Antes gradually developed the figure of the "cephalopod" around 1960, a form he has been occupied with since and of which he has made countless variations and modifications in all imaginable techniques. In 1962 the artist received the Villa Romana Prize for Florence and the following year the Villa Massimo scholarship for Rome, where "Figur mit großem Vogel" (Figure with large Bird) was created. Around this time the later abandoned profile view was consolidated, the color became subordinate to the structure of the form. [EH]
