Would I be going totally off the rails if I went searching German pop art for a solution?

Its German, - artist lived the same time as Pop - but no - he is not pop.

I actually put in the coloured balls of red and yellow to throw ye off the scent a bit - I thought it was going to be really obvious.

Clue - I saw this piece in IMMA a few years ago!

Ps - kool signature

Always thought Beuys relied too heavily on concept and not enough aesthetic value..ie not a huge fan.

I'll be back with something , hopefully later on in the day today.

It was the steely cold blue eye that gave it away . . .He had to be a German.



Otto Dix, Self-Portrait with Muse, 1924, oil and tempera on canvas, 31 7/8 x 37 3/8 inches, Osthaus Museum Hagen


Quote:
Here the fully clothed, thin-lipped, stern-faced fair-haired male artist encounters an almost comically over-endowed, flamboyantly ethnic — whether Semitic or Latin — woman. He confronts her, he is confronted by her, as she raises her hand in a gesture which can be read as a greeting, a blessing, or a stoppage, a counter-action to the reach of his brush which is in effect creating her. She is hardly the passive creation of a Pygmalion and if you look at some of the depictions of women by fascist-approved artists of the same general period in Germany you immediately get what makes this painting so different and seditious even though it does portray a naked woman and a clothed man, a familiar theme in the history of Western representation.
