Polke, Sigmar (German painter, 1941-2010)

Note: German painter became internationally influential after his first solo exhibition in New York at the Holly Solomon Gallery, 1982, though the work shown was created in the preceding decade. He is known for his multi-layered works that drew from found images, photography, and abstraction, work that itself was built on the innovations of American Pop Art. His reputation grew steadily from the 1980s, and he was considered at his death one of the foremost painters of his generation.
