• Striking work by the famous Austrian artist, who plays with covering and overlaying in his oeuvre.
• In 1978 and 1980, Arnulf Rainer represented Austria at the Venice Biennale.
• To this day, Rainer's overpaintings are considered the central principle of his work and an art-historically important contribution to European post-war art.
