Lot description
Der Mondhauptmann. 1969.
Oil on canvas.
Signed and dated lower right. Once more signed on stretcher as well as titlewd and inscribed "Berlin" as well as "C 705" twice. 140 x 110 cm (55,1 x 43,3 in).
Otmar Alt is often referred to as the "storyteller" among German artists. His pictures are not illustrations of famous stories, but rather fantastic image prose put together like a jigsaw of monochrome color fields. This way the artist asks the observer in an ironic manner to discover the title in the picture. [KP].
