Cologne gallerist Rolf Ricke is one of the foremost advocates of contemporary art. He was one of the first to introduce American Minimal and Post-Minimal art to Europe in the sixties, and he accompanied the careers of trailblazing artists such as Jo Baer, Bill Bollinger, Donald Judd, Garry Kuehn, Richard Serra, Keith Sonnier and Lee Lozano. Ricke’s collection, which also includes work by younger artists such as Jessica Stockholder, Steven Parrino, and Ingrid Calame, documents a very personal view of art, including both important individual pieces and comprehensive groups of works. In the fall of 2006, the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, and the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt am Main jointly acquired Ricke’s collection, maintaining it in its integral state. This publication, only parts of which are in English, presents the 150-work collection, putting the development of Rolf Ricke’s collection in context by means of a richly illustrated timeline and artists’ statements, thus documenting forty years of art history.
