This is a catalogue raisonne providing a look at the paintings, 2,700 drawings, objects, collages, watercolours and notebooks of Richard Lindner. Divided into sections each work is accompanied by data including the latest findings. The artist was a German-born refugee from Nazi oppression who created a deeply disturbing body of work completely at odds with that city's vanguard of the 1950s. Grotesque children, automaton couples, and denizens of the underworld populate his canvases.
Often hailed as a precursor of Pop Art, Lindner insisted that his was the art of an outsider, that "he was a man born between generations, between the Dadaists and the more recent generations of Americans". The situation of the emigre inspired Lindner's paintings which speak to the alienation and moral crises of this century and evoke the absurdity of the human condition. (A0+H0)
