The Winter Show
January 20 – 30, 2022
DANIEL BLAU is pleased to present a Winter Show exhibition of modern and contemporary works on paper and paintings by notable international artists including Anselm Kiefer (*1945), Georg Baselitz (*1938) and Andy Warhol (1928-1987).
Among the works by Baselitz on display are a number of mixed media pieces from the 1970s, landscapes in charcoal and washes of watercolor, ink and gouache on 19th Century book pages. The use of these pages presents text as an artistic medium, in which the words lose their verbal significance and become legible as a visual material. We will also show portraits of the artist’s wife, drawn with ink and rendered upside down in his signature style.
We are showing a selection of drawings by Andy Warhol. During his early years in New York, drawing was an essential element of his everyday life and artistic practice. He used a distinctive ‘blotted line’ technique for rendering copies of images, many of which he sourced in magazines of the time. His chosen subjects were often portraits and studies of the human form. The delicate, minimal works on paper are instantly recognizable as coming from his hand. These original drawings come directly from Warhol’s estate and and most of them have been shown in museums around the world.
Also on view is a graphite drawing on paper by Anselm Kiefer (*1945) portraying a nude female figure surrounded by woodland creatures, as well as two early colorful works on paper in crayon and gouache by Markus Lüpertz (*1941). Lüpertz is a German painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and writer. He also publishes a magazine and plays jazz piano, among his many pursuits.
Visitors to our exhibition will also enjoy a bold portrait of Pablo Picasso painted in oil on canvas by American artist Jonas Wood (*1977) in 2008 and a 1960s mixed media collage by Sigmar Polke (1941-2010).
We look forward to seeing you in New York.
