Raimund Girke

Raimund Girke, Ohne Titel, 1989 (detail)

German painter Raimund Girke (1930–2002) was a decisive pioneer of analytical painting and counts amongst the most important positions of German painting after 1945. In the course of his artistic development, Girke repeatedly turned against prevailing trends and consistently found ways to keep reducing and concentrating his pictorial language. The predominance of the colour white represents the essential constant in Girke’s work through various phases of his career.
