"Sigmar Polke: Early Works on Paper"

Art, Drawing Free

The gallery mounts nearly 100 of the German artist's drawings—all dating from the 1960s—in a tasty, mostly double-hung installation that demonstrates the artist's eclectic style and dizzying range of techniques. Much of the work was created during the artist's engagement with Capitalist Realism, the Pop Art movement he cofounded with Gerhard Richter, and exemplifies his wry send-up of postwar consumer society. But there are also fanciful landscapes on view, as well as studies for paintings and sculptures. In all, a great complement to Polke's MoMA retrospective.
