Ketterer Kunst
Description
Ohne Titel. 2003. Acrylic on canvas. Signed and dated in upper right. 150 x 180 cm (59 x 70.8 in). • Wonderful large-size homage to Barnett Newman, the founding father of Color Field Painting. • Förg's painting unites two seemingly opposite traits: the composition's geometric strictness and the gestural spontaneity of a vibrant color application. • Günther Förg's large-size color fields are part of many internationally acclaimed collections, including the MoMA, New York, the Städel, Frankfurt a. M., the Stedeljk Museum, Amsterdam, and the San Francisco Museum of Art. We are grateful to Mr. Michael Neff of the Estate Günther Förg for his kind confirmation of this work's authenticity. The work is registered at the archive with the number WVF.03.B.0165. PROVENANCE: Galeria Filomena Soares, Lisbon. Private collection Spain (acquired from aforementioned). "If you spend a lot of time thinking whilst painting, things get complicated. Sometimes I paint a picture and have a problem with it. Then I step back a little, observe it, and then select a blue color and continue painting with it. I don't reflect on whether I should paint with this color, I just instinctively grab blue. And that is quality." Günther Förg, 1997 Called up: December 11, 2020 - ca. 18.34 h +/- 20 min.
