Adolf Luther chose this work for the legendary exhibition in Münster in 1974, where Zangs‘ avant-gardist works were shown to a wider audience for the first time. The work is in the original frame which Luther commissioned in 1973/74 and wich has not been opened ever since. This is one of the very few works by Zangs that are still in the original condition they were in when the artist discovered the white works for the first time.
PROVENANCE: Private collection Paris.
"I was alone and very isolated, I worked like crazy all through the year. I felt like I had a tremenduous engine inside of me" Herbert Zangs about the year 1953 in an interview with a newspaper in 1994
