With a retrospective Museum Kunstpalast will be illuminating the work of an internationally renowned protagonist of the Düsseldorf art scene: Konrad Klapheck. Approximately 60 of his most important works from all of his creative periods have been selected in close collaboration with the artist himself. The exhibition also presents drawings and studies of selected pictures, thus demonstrating the creative process of his painting.
The representational painting of Konrad Klapheck, who has enjoyed international renown since the 1960s, defies comparison with any other. His oeuvre remains an exceptional phenomenon – his works, which at times are ascribed to Surrealism, at other times to Pop Art, have become classics already in his lifetime. Particularly well-known are his machinery pictures, which are monumental and extremely precise and can be experienced as threatening by the viewer. From 1997, human figures appear in Klapheck’s work, mostly in erotic scenes as well as in portraits of famous Jazz musicians.
