Günter Fruhtrunk Werkverzeichnis der Bilder – Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings 1952–1982


Colors and Stripes: the Entire Oeuvre by the Designer of the Aldi Logo in Two Volumes


ISBN: 9783775745031 Categories: ,


With his pictures, Günter Fruhtrunk (1923-1982) created an autonomous, uncompromising oeuvre that made him one of the outstanding representatives of German painting in the post-war era. He became famous for his vector-like, diagonal stripes: impressive paintings of parallel, diagonal bundles of stripes in yellow, orange, green, black, and white, whose geometrical, abstract vocabulary of forms he derived from constructivism. This catalogue raisonné-the result of extensive scientific research over a period of three years- contains all of the paintings he produced between 1952 and 1982. Along with several essays that explore Fruhtrunk’s work and its significance, while also defining its place in art history, the catalogue raisonné contains texts by the author never published before and an extensive biography. The work is organized into two volumes according to chronology and visual motif.EXHIBITIONMunich, Galerie Walter Storms15.09.2018 – 13.10.2018
