At last, a comprehensive catalog – almost a catalogue raisonné – of the work of painter Markus Lüpertz, a treasure of the German art world for almost 50 years. Considered a peer of Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, and Georg Baselitz, Lupertz has never believed in the purely representational purpose of art; instead, in his own words, he has always been “searching for the potential picture,” and thus never felt bound by any one style. An inspiration for younger artists such as Peter Doig, Tal R and Thomas Houseago, Lupertz has freely created works from a vast fund of artistic and historic-cultural material, devising coded paintings that bear his emphatic signature. This catalog, accompanying an important retrospective, stretches back to works fro the 1960s and includes an extensive section of photographic documentation.
