In 1959 the artist was invited to documenta II in Kassel, and a year later, in 1960, he spent a year on a scholarship at Villa Massimo in Rome. During this time, the scriptural found increasing expression in his works, the gestural-spontaneous character gives way to a conceptual composition. The exchange with artists such as Cy Twombly, whom he met through Jean-Paul Wilhelm, played an important role in this context. The beautiful large-format sheet from 1960 was made in the early days of this important creative phase, which ultimately led to his letter pictures. In the same year, Hoehme also accepted a professorship at the Düsseldorf Art Academy, which he held until 1984. [EH]
