At a glance: the complete works

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 four 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.
