Detailed description

Picture "Portrait. Penelope" (1992)

The influence of Classical Modernism always remained palpable in the work of Knoebel, who is now considered an important representative of German Minimal Art. The "Portrait Penelope" is a radical work that is both a non-representational composition and an abstracted face.

The humour that shines through in this work interacts with the simple beauty of the arrangement of colour and form. Thus, this large-format print is a lively, enlightening addition that knows how to fit stylistically into a wide variety of interiors. The small edition of only 25 copies further underlines the collectability of this work.

Original colour silkscreen, 1992. 25 copies, numbered and signed on verso. Motif size/sheet size 200 x 140 cm. Size in frame 205 x 145 cm as shown.

About Imi Knoebel

Imi Knoebel, born 1940 in Dessau, Germany, studied at the Düsseldorf Art Academy – in the class of Joseph Beuys.

His works fascinate art lovers all over the world. Knoebel's pictures are strictly non-objective and clear contoured, full of decisiveness and conciseness. At the same time, the intellectual remains invisible. It is the "unpainted" parts that create sensations and sets no limits to the viewer’s imagination.

At the beginning of the 1970s, he formed an artistic triumvirate with his fellow students Imi Giese and Blinky Palermo in the stylistic tradition of American Minimal Art. Based on Kasimir Malevich's Suprematism, he created a fundamental visual language from which he continues to create rigorously abstract and concise images to this day.

For the 800th anniversary of the Reims Cathedral, he was commissioned to design six new stained glass windows that attracted worldwide attention. On the occasion of his 75th birthday, the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg organised a comprehensive exhibition for him.
