Message: There are no samples from Jörg Immendorff at - the summary of his life is quite elaborate and narrated in the light of its interdependence with the political and social environment in Germany during the past 40 years. The description of Café Deutschland provokes one’s curiosity, but as there is no visual examples of the paintings Immendorff made of it, the audience could neither feel, nor imagine the atmosphere he created, the characters he depicted and the ideas, embodied in these series. I believe that images of his artwork are needed even more so as the article is an obituary.

Message: An interesting article on Immendorff. It can be used in BG schools together with some examples of his work. The article is quite informative and offers details on Immendorff's life in an interesting manner. Thank you for suggesting it in the artsources databank.
