The Phillips Collection presents the first comprehensive survey in the US of the monumental works of Markus Lüpertz (b. 1941), the acclaimed German artist who helped chronicle and shape the postwar image of his country. Comprised of nearly 50 selections, the exhibition traces Lüpertz’s career from the 1960s to his most recent works, including major examples of his perplexing “dithyrambic” paintings and his provocative manipulations of German motifs. The exhibition is curated by Phillips Director Dorothy Kosinski in close collaboration with the artist and Michael Werner Gallery.
