This out-of-print monograph surveys the influential paintings of Sigmar Polke. Polke’s self-awareness as an artist working within the tropes and traditions that govern the "art world" is metabolized through his body of work, so his paintings possess an innate sense of both significance and irony. This catalogue contains 50 color reproductions of critical Polke pieces with essays from curators of his work. As a whole, Polke's work makes a strong case for the continued relevance of painting in the contemporary art world.
This volume was published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Sigmar Polke: Alchemist," held from 30 March – 29 July 2001 by the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek in collaboration with the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art in Oslo.
