    Modern and contemporary art with lots of graphic elements at Jeschke van Vliet in Berlin

    Illuminated mysticism Two pointed light red triangles mysteriously break their way in the deep dark blue. It is as if the glimmer of a new day is trying to drive away the night. In 1967 Lothar Quinte created his square canvas “Corona in Dark Blue”, relying on the independence of color. He himself saw the picture as a complex optical event, reduced to the essentials. "I have always sought calm in movement, the implosion of color instead of explosion, an image state - aliterary, acompositional - an invitation to sensual gaze", he said in an interview in 1997 and was therefore a sought-after artist, especially for them Design of church windows that become a visible expression of transcendence into another world. Lothar Quinte's mystical “Corona in Dark Blue” is now available at the Berlin auction house Jeschke van Vliet. The serigraph in colors, published six times by Edition Rottloff in Karlsruhe, requires 4,000 euros. Quinte also has three fan pictures in blue, yellow-green and gray from 1969 for 3,000 euros each. Quinte had its origins in the informal painting of the early post-war years. The catalog, with a good 500 items, lists, for example, Fred Thieler's spotty, gray-black mixed media from 1959 for 4,500 euros, Karl Otto Götz 's violet color swings on the lithograph “Somma” from 1996 for 700 euros, and Jean Fautriers untitled three-layer aquatint etching from 1962 for 300 euros. Fritz Jarchov developed his painting in the 1960s as a combination of geometric and biomorphic forms , for which the catalog lists two characteristic, untitled oil paintings for 1,500 euros each. ZERO-Kunst contributed Günther Uecker with the embossing of a nail spiral from 1972 (estimate 3,600 EUR) or Otto Piene with the serigraphy of a white, tapering circle of light on a black background from 1970 (estimate 700 EUR). Walter Leblanchas also painterly processed his three-dimensional relief-like twists and sprayed a serial arrangement of circular segments in silver and gray onto the canvas with gouache (estimate 2,000 EUR). The selection for the portfolio for the Cologne Art Market in 1968, with graphic works by 21 artists, including Lothar Quinte, Ludwig Wilding , Richard Anuszkiewicz , Rupprecht Geiger , Jesús Rafael Soto , Piero Dorazio and Georg Karl Pfahler , also relied almost entirely on abstract positions . Figurative artists like Gerhard Richter or Otmar Alt had to fight against this overwhelming powerenforce vigorously (estimate 8,000 EUR).…
