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.
The painting pictured above is called “Cafe Deutschland: Contemplating The Question – Where Do I Stand” and was painted by Jorg Immendorff in 1987. More Immendorff paintings and information can be found at the Saatchi Gallery website.
