Detailed description

Picture "Willy VII" (1996)

Rainer Fetting portrayed the former chancellor as a student in the 1970s. He never met Willy Brandt in person. He used photographs and film footage as models for his works. This is probably how he created his best-known work, the Willy Brandt statue in the atrium of the Willy Brandt House in Berlin. Based on the statue's face, he created a series of colour serigraphs.

Original colour serigraph, 1996. Edition of 50 copies on handmade paper, numbered and signed by hand. Motif size/sheet size 122.5 cm x 86 cm. Size in frame 129 x 92.5 cm as shown.

About Rainer Fetting

Rainer Fetting, born in 1949 in Wilhelmshaven, Germany, is one of the great names in the international contemporary art scene.

Rainer Fetting's sculptural œuvre occupies an ever-larger place in public space. "Everything I do is realistic. And yet every good artistic work has abstraction. The viewer is not fixed in it but rather has space for thought and imagination."

After studying at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin, Fetting founded the Galerie am Moritzplatz in Berlin in the late 1970s, together with Luciano Castelli, Middendorf, Salomé and Bernd Zimmer. That was the birth of the Neue Wilden. His pictures and sculptures enrich major private and public collections. Today, the artist lives in Berlin and New York.
