Norbert Tadeusz (1940–2011) is considered to have been one of the most important exponents of figurative painting and post-war figuration in Germany.
Born in Dortmund, he studied in Düsseldorf under Gerhard Hoehme and later in Joseph Beuys’ masterclass. Norbert Tadeusz went on to become an art professor himself at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, among other institutions.
Tadeusz’ images, often large-format with powerful colors, are characterized by their complex composition. In his expressive image vocabulary the artist redesigns the stress ratio between object and space, and depicts the scenes and subjects represented from an unusual perspective.
Tadeusz became famous for his very idiosyncratic style and put on lots of large exhibitions, including at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne. Today his art can be found in the collections of prestigious museums including Munich’s Pinakothek der Moderne.
“[...] what art is: not imitating nature, but making inner structures visible through the artist’s creative power.” – Norbert Tadeusz
