German Artist Jorg Immendorff Dies at 61

The German expressionist artist Jörg Immendorff passed away on Monday at the age of 61. The artist struggled with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which forced him to change painting hands (from left to right) and eventually forced him to stop painting in 2006.

Jorg Immendorff was born on the 14th of June, 1945 in Germany. He died on the 28th of May, 2007 in Düsseldorf.

About Dion

Australian artist and observer of things.. all kinds of things. I like a wide variety of art, from the weird and wonderful to the bold and beautiful.. and everything in between.


  1. What a shame, such a talented artist. I wonder what his death will do to the prices of his work??

  2. Of course the prices will go up… supply and demand. The supply has been stopped.
