A. R. Penck has created several works in cooperation with his master student Frank Breidenbruch

For a period of time, A.R. Penck and Frank Breidenbruch shared a studio in Carrara, the most famous quarry worldwide. In addition, they were involved in the founding of the group of artists ‘Fosfsfrs Club’ (friends of social formula science fiction research sculptur) along with Helge Leiberg, Christof Hussmann, Perdrac Simic and Helmut Zimmermann. The present painting is the founding image of the afore-mentioned group. Penck met H. Zimcon, to whom is dedicated the painting, on the occasion of the creation of his large sculpture ‘Centro Spirituale’ the same year.

The painting is in good condition, showing small paint losses to the corners and pressure marks from the stretcher. The dimensions are 200 x 140 cm.

A. R. Penck (b. 1939)
Born in Dresden in 1939, painter and sculptor Ralf Winkler started taking drawing lessons with Strawalde. In the early 1950s, he was trained as an advertising artist. In 1966, he adopted the pseudonym ‘A.R. Penck’. As off 1973, he also signed his works with ‘Mike Hammer’, ‘T. M.’ or ‘Y.’. Whilst his work was under various restrictions in the German Democratic Republic, he received the Will Grohmann Award from the Academy of Arts in West Berlin in 1975. In 1976, he met the artist Jörg Immendorff, with whom he collaborated for a few years. In 1980, Penck moved to West Germany. Three years later, he settled in London, and in 1988 he moved to Düsseldorf for a job as a professor for painting at the Academy of Arts. After his retirement in 2003, he settled in Dublin, where he lives and works today. Works by A.R. Penck are on display in major museums collections, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Städel Museum in Frankfurt/Main, the Kunstmuseum Basel and the Staatsgalerie Stuttgart.

Frank Breidenbruch (b. 1963) - German sculptor
Born in Wuppertal, Frank Breidenbruch graduated from a three-year stonemason and sculptor training and worked as a freelance sculptor until 1988. He then settled in Carrara, working in the studio Nicoli. That same year he met A.R. Penck for the first time and began an artistic collaboration. From 1989 to 1993, he studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Carrara. In 1991, he was a master student of A. R. Penck. Breidenbruch has been exhibited internationally, most notably in Italy and Wuppertal. (cko)
