Sigmar Polke (1941â2010) was born in Oels, in eastern Germany, now Olesnica in present-day Poland. At the end of World War II, Polke and his family fled to East Germany and, in 1953, escaped to DÃ¼sseldorf, where he was trained as a glass painter and subsequently studied at the Kunstakademie DÃ¼sseldorf. Since the late 1960s, Polkeâs work has been shown widely, including solo exhibitions at European and American museums. His last major work was a commission for 12 stained glass windows of the GrossmÃ¼nster in Zurich, Switzerland, completed in 2009.
About: Working across an unusually broad range of media, including painting, photography, film, drawing and sculpture, Sigmar Polke is widely regarded as one of the most influential and experimental artists of the post-war generation.
