Jörg Immendorff

Gyntiana - Gebur t Zwiebelmann [Gyntiana - The Birth of Onionman]   

1992
Oil on canvas

300 x 400 cm

In Gyntiana, Jorg Immendorff presents an allegory of creation: surrounded by heroes of ideological importance, an onion springs forth from a richly fertile womb. Jorg Immendorff once said that painting ‘has the function of a potato’. Here it’s reborn in the multilayered richness of ideological and intellectual nourishment.
