San Francisco: Modernism, 1986, Color poster. 32 x 19 inches.Signed and presented to the preeminent San Francisco picture framer.
Helnwein is one of the best-known, but also most controversial German-speaking artists after the Second World War. He was best known for his hyperrealistic pictures of wounded and bandaged children. Throughout his career, he deals with the themes of pain, injury and violence, and also touches taboo and stimulus topics of recent history. Thus, in particular, the subject of National Socialism is processed in his works; but in the center of his work is above all the representation of the child. Item #51-2483
