Jorg Immendorff: Draw by Jörg Immendorff

German painter Jörg Immendorff, who died in 2007, used his drawings as a way of thinking out ideas. These works--many of which are unknown--are extremely significant to his oeuvre. This volume contextualizes this under-examined facet of Immendorff's practice.

About the Author

Jorg Immendorff was born in 1945 in Bleckede, Germany. As a young man, he studied stagecraft and stage design in Dusseldorf before moving on to study art under the tutelage of Joseph Beuys in 1964. The mid-60s were a time of great social crisis in Germany, and Immendorff responded by creating his seminal first body of work, the politically charged "LIDL," the sound of which was meant to evoke that of a baby's rattle, and thus to ridicule the idea of the precious aesthetic object and elitist art traditions. In future works, Immendorff continued to subvert and skewer his countryis politics, art and the world in general. His work has been exhibited throughout Europe, Asia and the United States, including recent solo exhibitions at Anton Kern Gallery and Michael Werner Gallery in New York and Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia.
