About the artist:
A.R. Penck, born RalfWinkler in 1939 (just passed in 2017), from Dresden, Germany,
adopted his pseudonym after reading the work of thegeologist Albrecht Penck.
A.R. Penck lived in East Berlin from 1963 to 1972.
Unable to exhibit there publicly, he smuggled works out
to West Berlin and Switzerland, where he enjoyed enough fame
to provide him some protection from the German police.
Penck's style fused spontaneous self-expression with restraint,
and pop cultural and art historical influences with political and social concerns.
A Neo-Expressionist painter, sculptor and print-maker, the influences of
Modern Primitivism with German Expressionism are clear in this composition.
He also made sometimes-monumental wooden sculptures.
Penck was also a jazz musician and published theoretical writings,
sometimes juxtaposing or interspersing them with poems.
