Description: Gerhard Altenbourg. 'Entrückt im Filter des Schweigens', 1977. 58.5 x 41.5 cm. Watercolour, crayon, Chinese ink on paper. Signed in pencil: G. Altenbourg 77, and marked: AG ALTENBOURG (embossed). Mounted, glass frame.

Gerhard Altenbourg gehört zu den eigenwilligsten Grafikern der Nachkriegszeit. Der unter dem Namen Gerhard Ströch in Rödichen-Schnepfental in Thüringen geborene Sohn eines Predigers war nach seinem Kriegsdienst erst als Autor und Journalist tätig, bevor er nach einer Ausbildung an der Weimarer Hochschule für Baukunst und Bildende Kunst als freischaffender Grafiker arbeitete. In der DDR wurde Altenbourg als Nonkonformist nicht gewürdigt.

Im WV von Annegret Janda, Gerhard Altenbourg, Köln 2010, Bd. III, 1977-1989, Nr. 77/20.
