Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Born in Dresden in 1939 as Ralf Winkler, the painter and sculptor adopted several pseudonyms.  'A. R. Penck' was eventually the name that stuck and that he is now famous for.

He started taking drawing lessons by Strawalde and in the early 1950s completed an apprenticeship as an advertising artist.  As of 1956 he applied a total number of four times to the Academy of Arts in Dresden as well as the Academy of Fine and Applied Arts in East Berlin, every time unsuccessful.  (showing 500 of 1231 characters).
