The internationally renowned photographer Walter Vogel is widely known for his unforgettable portraits of Pina Bausch and Joseph Beuys. What has, however, received less attention thus far is his art of photographing female beauty.


R. B. Kitaj (1932-2007)
Together with his artist friends Frank Auerbach, Lucian Freud and Leon Kossoff, the American artist R. B. Kitaj was one of the pioneers of a new type of figurative art in the 1960s.
Ten years later, in the mid-1970s, Kitaj positioned himself as a Jewish artist and saw himself as an instigator of a modern Jewish art movement. It is worth rediscovering the importance of this aspect of Kitaj’s oeuvre. Strong colours and a wealth of motifs and pictorial citations, which add to the mystery of the painting, are characteristic of all his works.
