German Neo-Expressionist painter and sculptor A.R. PENCK (1939–2017) has died in Zürich

German Neo-Expressionist painter, sculptor and jazz drummer A.R. Penck has died in Zürich at the age of seventy seven. His German gallerist said the cause of his death was complications of a stroke.

Ralf Winkler, alias A. R. Penck, was born in Dresden, Germany. After failing admission to the fine-arts academies in Dresden and East Berlin, Penck worked for several years in a lot of jobs.
In the early 1970s he met with a group of neo-expressionist painters in Dresden. Penck became later one of the exponents of the new figuration alongside with Jörg Immendorff, Georg Baselitz and Markus Lüpertz. In the late 1970s he was shown in West Berlin and was seen as an exponent of free speech in the East. In the 1980s Penck’s work was shown by major museums and galleries in the western world.
Ralf Winkler, alias A. R. Penck, Mike Hammer, T. M., Mickey Spilane, Theodor Marx, “a. Y.” or just “Y” died last week in Zürich.
