• Between 1964 and 1968, Wintersberger was part of the legendary Berlin exhibition collective and gallery "Großgörschen 35", where works from, among others, Markus Lüpertz, K. H. Hödicke and Bernd Koberling were shown.
• With their new figurative art, the artists around Wintersberger took a stand against the then predominant painting of Informalism and became formative for West German art well in to the 1980s.
• Similar works from the 1960s and 1970s are in important public collections like the Berlinische Galerie Museum für moderne Kunst, Berlin, the Städel Museum, Frankfurt am Main, and in the Daimler Art Collection.
• In 2015 Wintersberger's art was honored in the grand show "German Pop" at Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt am Main
.

PROVENANCE: Collection Hans-Jürgen Müller, Stuttgart (acquired directly from the artist).
