Jorg Immendorff

J?rg Immendorff was a German Neo-Expressionist painter known for his realistic figurative style and use of symbolic imagery. Taking cues from New Objectivity artists such as George Grosz, Max Beckmann, and Otto Dix, his representations markedly differ from the more abstract practices of his contemporaries like Markus L?pertz/ and A.R. Penck. ?Something is beautiful if it is honest,? Immendorff had said. ?If you do an engaged piece of work, which is sincere, the concept of beauty meets the concept of truth.? Born on June 14, 1945 in Bleckede, Germany, Immendorff studied at the Kunstakademie D?sseldorf under the famed Conceptual artist Joseph Beuys. Immendorff?s popular painting series Caf? Deutschland combined autobiography with social and political commentary in the 1970s, often placing former tutor Beuys within the painted scenes. Immendorff?s first exhibition in the United States was held in 1982 at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, and he died on May 28, 2007 in D?sseldorf, Germany at the age of 61 from complications due to ALS.
