Abstract Expressionist Art informel Ohne Titel after Horst Antes 1965

US$10,540

About

Horst Antes (b 1936) is one of the great figures of continental Modernism after WWII. He was not only inspired by both major post-war movements in art, abstract expressionism (a la de Kooning and Pollock) as well as art informel / povera, his abstracted figurations of the 1960’s onwards serve as a bridge between these seemingly disparate sets of artists and their notions of the function of art. His figures call to mind the early primitivist works if Pollock and other New York School artists of the late 1940’s, the masterful use of color and the inherent planarity of paint on canvas like Hans Hoffman, who mentored, inspired and at times pissed off the young artists of the New York School, as well as the groundedness and humanity of the great art informel masters of Europe, such as. Here we see a work (gauche) that appears to be from his formative 1960’s experimentation that would ultimately lead to his figure, for which he is most known and with which he has been associated for decades: the Kopfussler, aka the head-footer (torsoless figure), a symbol of our most base and cerebral parts as forever one. From the estate of a Connecticut collector of mid-century European art.
