Jörg Immendorff (1945-2007)
Jörg Immendorff was born in 1945 in Bleckede in Lower Saxony. He studied at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and at the beginning he created figurative paintings with socio-critical messages. Immendorff developed a new style of history paintings in Germany. In 1976 he took part at the Biennale in Venice. In the same year he formed a friendship with the German painter A. R. Penck, who at this time still lived in East Germany and was proscribed there. Jörg Immendorff is considered as one of the most important, contemporary German artists. He died in 2007 in Düsseldorf.
