Oil on paper by Axel Kassebohmer, approx. 20x14 in. Axel Kasseböhmer was a German painter known for his landscapes and still lifes which incorporated stylistic attributes of Western art history and mechanical reproduction. Culling from German Expressionist woodcuts, the sepia-toned ink washes of Claude Lorrain, Impressionist studies, and vintage postcards, Kasseböhmer depicted his subject matter through a mediated lens. Born in 1952 in Herne, Germany, he studied under Joseph Beuys and Gerhard Richter at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf before moving to Munich. The artist died on September 9, 2017 in Munich, Germany. Today, Kasseböhmer’s works are held in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in Frankfurt am Main, the Museum Fokwang in Essen, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, among others.
