• Early work from the sought-after 1950s.
• Deliberate irritation of the black lines through color and scracthes, typical of the time.
• From 1950 onwards, the artist abandoned the object as a motif and color became the actual pictorial element.
• Other works from this creative period can be found in important museum collections like the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Hamburger Kunsthalle
.
