Jörg Immendorff was one of the most outstanding contemporary German painters. He was born in 1945 and he died in 2007. Immendorff was also a sculptor, designer and art professor.
He is one of the most divisive painters of the post-war German artists and his paintings can not be classified into historical or other categories but on the other hand he is one of the most typical German painter not only because he was interested in the German political questions and issues but because in his paintings he adopted earlier German painting traditions from Otto Dix, George Grosz and Max Beckmann. On his paintings he used exultant colours and his vivid imaginary. The exhibition is mostly focused on the transformation he had through the years in his art works. The exhibition presents Immendorff works in a new way and visitors will have the chance to explore the development of the artist through his paintings. The main goal of the exhibition is to show the vivid colours he used on his paintings, the shades and the details. The exhibition will take place in the capital of Hungary in Budapest at the Museum of Fine Arts. It will be shown from 9th November 2014 until next year 15th February 2015.
