Martin Kippenberger

Paris Bar Berlin

1993
Oil on Cotton

212 x 382cm

In Paris Bar, Martin Kippenberger writes his own importance in art history. Acting as curator, he installed the café’s art collection; then as shameless self-promoter, he painted the café interior. Reminiscent of eighteenth and nineteenth century paintings of salon interiors, Martin Kippenberger places himself on a par with the masters, drawing on early 20th century American art.
