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

Graubner born on 13 June 1930 in Erlbach in Vogtland. 1947-48 he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin, then to 1952 at the Kunstakademie in Dresden. After moving to the West Graubner sets from 1954 continued his art studies at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf. In the years 1955-57, the imagery Graubner of previously used geometric shapes of color dissolves. First, in watercolors, then on the screen tested Graubner forms of color application that secure the often compacted layers a priority over the limiting form of image edges. In order to enhance the spatial effect of color surfaces, Graubner be laid in the early 1960s on image to mount large ink pad into the picture itself and also to span later Perlongewebe. By the previous impregnation and painting the fabric cushions by means of several layers of diluted acrylic paints Graubner creates a fluctuating, breathing compaction equal to a color body, which in the sagging cushions images - is increased to a belly like accessing the viewer color space - as in the present case. These so-called `Kissenbilder` are first issued by the gallery owner Alfred Schmela and finally bring Graubner in 1965 to teach at the Academy of Fine Arts in Hamburg, where he has been professor of painting from 1969. With its `Kissenbildern` that form a very unique and fascinating plant complex in Graubner ?? oeuvre and as the most innovative artists of the Bilschöpfungen apply Graubner in 1968 also represented for the first time at the Documenta in Kassel. Replaced in 1970 Graubner the older plant names `Farbleib` or` `Kissenbild` by Farbraumkörper`. When he takes the FRG in 1971 at the Biennale in São Paulo, he takes the opportunity to continue our journey to Colombia, Peru and Mexico. 1973 Graubner member of the Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin, in 1976, he was appointed professor of painting at the Art Academy in Dusseldorf. A show is 1980 in the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden instead. In the West German Pavilion at the Venice Biennale Graubner can be seen in 1982 with a five-part `Farbraumkörper` ensemble. 1988 creates Graubner for the office of President in Berlin, Schloss Bellevue, two great works. 2001/02 the work of Otto Ritschl Prize winner at the Museum Wiesbaden are issued. To develop the life of its own color - to exempt from the claim must represent something other than itself - is the great theme of art Gotthard Graubner.
