Markus Lüpertz (b.1941)
in artist's frame

Consistent with Lüpertz’s Gelber Held on the first floor, Die Toilette, also a recent work, borrows the classical vision of Arcadia as the setting. In the painting, Lüpertz chooses to disrupt the classical depiction by integrating contradictory elements- - animal skulls.

Markus Lüpertz is a highly prolific painter and sculptor as well as an accomplished poet and critical writer - a modern "Renaissance man" who, though firmly grounded in tradition, strives for renewal in his every creative act.

Markus Lüpertz describes his urge to paint as a “defect”. The permanent dissatisfaction, however, keeps him young and is his drive to try art again and again. "To that extent," said Lüpertz, "I am a young artist who stands before you and tries to open up the gods up there."
