Standomi un giorno solo a la fenestra...

Past: January 23 → March 7, 2020

Standomi un giorno solo a la fenestra… » is a verse from Petrarca that Günther Förg chose for the title of a series of 100 watercolours with an identical format, produced in 2001 for an exhibition at Galerie Lelong in Paris. This title aptly encapsulates the artist’s attitude: he stands at the window and he observes. He paints what he sees: a field, a cloud, a fence, the horizon, a country road, a tree. He paints what he thinks of: lines, marks, abstract signs. He even paints the window itself. And always with the light touch, the suppleness and the grace for which he is renowned.

Günther Förg was born in 1952 in Füssen, Germany and died in 2013 in Freiburg in Switzerland. His works, paintings, sculptures, photographs and prints form part of the collections of the leading museums worldwide. Galerie Lelong has exhibited the artist since 1996.
