This bold modernist mixed media painting was painted by German / American artist Peter Robert Keil (b. 1942). Kiel was born in Züllichau / Pomerania and studied at the University of the Arts, Berlin. His first mentor was painter Otto Nagel. He admired the works of the Expressionists, Picasso in particular, whom he later met in Spain. The expressiveness of the vivid color opened a way to temporarily escape from the dullness and depression of everyday life in post-war Germany as Peter made his first attempts at visual art. He was also influenced by Juan Miro and from the early 1960s on, Keil established studios in Paris, London, Berlin and in the US.
