Here, for the first time, is a comprehensive presentation of a hitherto little-known and under-appreciated aspect of the art of Sigmar Polke: the more than 140 works that he has produced in editions since 1963. This catalogue raisonné is no mere record of a subordinate genre: it offers a direct insight into the highly experimental universe of imagery that characterizes one of the major artists of the past century. It reveals the immense importance of the editioned works in relation to Polke's art as a whole.ì Since the early 1970s, the authors of this catalogue, Jürgen Becker and Claus von der Osten, have collected editioned works in all their manifold forms. With the extensive picture material provided by Polke's prints, editioned drawings and photographs, objects, catalog inserts, artist's books and posters, and with Martin Hentschel's knowledgeable essay, this catalogue raisonné is both a picture book full of contrasts and a fascinating work of reference. Polke's wit, his biting mockery and his scintillating invention are as relishable as ever. (English edition available ISBN 3-7757-0957-6) The artist: Sigmar Polke, born at Oels, Silesia. 1962-1967 studies at the Düsseldorf art academy with Karl Otto Götz and Gerhard Hoehme.
