Overview

Artists' Painters presents international positions of experimental painting from an important private collection. The core of the Cologne-based collection is a comprehensive group of works by the Belgian artist Pierre Alechinsky (*1927). Also represented are Cora Cohen (*1943), Greg Kwiatek (*1948), Ira Bartell (*1954), Gerrit Göllner (*1973), Chris Newman (*1958), Steven Maslin (*1959) and Alice Stepanek (*1954). A separate volume provides an introduction to this remarkable collection as a whole.
