Further, with stamp '910152' on the reverse. 180 : 150 cm (70,8 : 59 in). ‘Günther Förg knows many things about art, here meaning artistic feelings and processes rather than art history. Hence he always manages to pro-actively overcome inertia with a minimum of inconvenience when confronted with an empty support (lead, wood or canvas) for paint, to accomplish the amount of work he has set himself in order to make the picture that emerges approximate art as soon as possible, to let it stand in the charged field that is art, while at the same time monitoring the extent to which it can take the heat there.’ (Trans. from the original. Johannes Gachnang, in: Exhibition cat. Galerie Fahnemann, Berlin 1994, unpag.). [LB]

Good overall impression.
