Death of a painter

Monday, this week we decided to visit Museum More and the exhibition “Der Pinsel hat gesprochen” with paintings of the German painter Johannes Grützke.
Yesterday we read the message that he died this week.

Therefore I decided today to interrupt my series “Portraits of New York” with a “Portrait of the Dead Painter”

German artist Johannes Grützke died at the age of 79. This has been published by Museum MORE from Gorssel, where an exhibition of the artist is currently available. Although he was seriously ill for a long time, he could still attend the opening of this exhibition in February this year. It is his first major exhibition outside Germany and still visible until June 11th.

In the 1960s, Grützke resisted the prevailing trend of abstraction in German art world by painting primarily figuratively, this is what the Volkskrant writes today. He was therefore also called the German Lucien Freud. He is always realistic to continue painting work. Recently there was a fuss about his painting Darstellung der Freiheit (1972), which was removed by Facebook because the image would be "too sexually tinted".

In the workshop you can see a picture of Darstellung der Freiheit and a Selfportrait of the painter
