Catalog Raisonné 1969–1993
Max Schulze, Karin Menne & Phillip Schulze (Eds.)
The first detailed catalogue raisonné ever produced on self-taught German painter Memphis Schulze (1944–2008) includes a complete document of the artist’s work through 1993 plus extensive personal photographs of Schulze, his friends including Sigmar Polke and Achim Duchow, and the Dusseldorf art scene of which he was a part for two decades. Assembled by his sons Max and Philip together with writer Katrin Menne, this book is a tribute to an artist little known outside of Europe but deeply influential to many younger artists of his time. An unexpected addition is a complete list of Schulze’s legendary LP collection of American and London rock music from 1955–88, shared with the German art community in those post war years. Essays by Polke specialists Petra Lange-Berndt and Dietmar Rübel elucidate the social and aesthetic relationships within that scene and the influence of America and American culture on the younger German generation.
