Included are also monochromatic color fields by Tadaaki Kuwayama, while Bernd Minnich is featured with an atmospheric work in white, yellow and gold in a transverse rectangular shape. Nevertheless Qiu Shi-Hua’s large, white canvas show a landscape appearing as though out of a fog. Abstract Expressionist painting is represented with the work of Duisburg artist Manfred Vogel. Line-animated intaglio prints by Ben Nicholson (1966/67) occupy the space between abstract and figurative representation and boulder-breaking powers are manifested in sculptures by Ulrich Rückriem, who plays with the contrast between polished and natural surfaces. Rückriem also made a series of pictures entitled “Damenthema”. The work of Giuseppe Spagnulos also shows the force of breaking steel.
