Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart
(1899-1962)
Komposition no. 219 (Composition No. 219), 1962

Oil on canvas, 31.5 x 41.3 in.
Sammlung DaimlerChrysler


In the 1920s, Vordemberge-Gildewart developed a strict constructivist and precisely calculated method of painting founded on the principles of geometric abstraction in which everything arbitrary and accidental was eliminated. One of his most important concerns was locating the correct distance between two points or colors. As this work reveals, these concerns continued to occupy him throughout his life and they are apparent in this late Komposition of wide vertical stripes.
