George Condo, acrylic on paper, 1983

The American artist George Condo started his career in New York where he secured his place in the art world alongside iconic artists such as Haring, Warhol and Basquiat. He developed a style in which he incorporates numerous elements from classical and modern art history. The majority of his oeuvre consists of expressive portraits with which he seeks an emotional confrontation. What Condo calls ‘Artificial Realism’ reflects the psychological state of every citizen in our contemporary era.

This cartoonish work dates from his early days. A somewhat absurdist scene inspired by the surrealist masters of previous decades. His art-historical knowledge forms the basis of his search for a very unique visual language.
