Lothar Wolleh portrait: Joseph Beuys (240 x 240 cm)

Lothar Wolleh has taken countless photographs of Beuys over the years, ranging from settings such as the Moderna Museet in Stockholm to Beuys as a teacher at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. Exhibited in the Beuys Room at Tate Modern, the photograph is notable for its larger-than-life dimensions (240cm x 240cm), a typical way in which Wolleh presented his work and introduced himself.

The goal of the Beuys Room is to discover the work and perspective of Joseph Beuys, who saw art as central to all aspects of human existence. The Wolleh portrait has achieved cult status in the art world, so it has entered the space originally intended only for Beuys' works.

Lothar Wolleh Estate has another 240 x 240 print of this portrait in its inventory.
