This publication showcases sculptures, paintings, drawings and sketches by Markus Lüpertz. The works that brought him worldwide fame were displayed in the enfilades on the third floor of the General Staff Building of the State Hermitage Museum.
Focus is placed on the series of bronze sculptures produced specially for the Hermitage show. Created in the last years of Lüpertz’s life, they interpret the art of Classical Greece and invite the public to follow the journey of ancient gods and heroes through time into the modern day.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, 26 March – 25 May 2014.
