The metaphorical finale of the photo magazine THE OPÉRA

Richard Lindner

Großstadtzirkus | Big-City Circus | Le cirque de la grande ville
The painter Richard Lindner introduces his shadow figures of big-city life as if under a big top: thieves, prostitutes or gamblers as protagonists on the margins of society. With his unmistakeable imagery, Lindner has become one of the most important pioneers of Pop Art. The fifty or so oil paintings, watercolours and drawings in this catalogue provide an insight into his different creative phases from the 1950s to the 1970s. In cooperation with the estate of the artist, the catalogue gathers together numerous preliminary studies of Lindner’s paintings that have never before been shown in public and which demonstrate the  erstwhile illustrator’s meticulous conquest of the image’s surface.
