The paintings, drawings and sculptural work of George Condo (*1957) offer a virtuosic examination of a wide range of art-historical idioms, which he transforms into his own visual language. He depicts grotesque, tragicomic and sometimes monstrous subjects with stylistic elements from seventeenth-century Venetian or Dutch painting, but also Cubism, Surrealism and Pop Art. The New York-based artist has been associated with the gallery for over three decades, having mounted one of the first solo exhibitions of his career at Galerie Monika Sprüth in 1984.
