Oil on Canvas
200 x 150cm
Spanning three decades of immense political change in his native Germany, Jorg Immendorff’s work took a turn from the political to the personal in the late 1980’s. His many self-portraits depict a lonely creator, whose role as cultural antenna has suddenly been rendered obsolete.
In Solo, Jorg Immendorff places himself not in a theatre but outside in a sprawling cityscape. The artist sits at his usual Café Deutschland table, now positioned throne-like upon a scene of a reunited Germany, which is suddenly thriving with everyday life.
