Since the early 1970s, Willikens has explored the representation of pictorial space in European painting. After initially producing various series of gloomy interiors, he expanded his chromatic palette of grays and simultaneously rethought the rational, clear, spatial concepts of the Italian Renaissance. Influenced by his studies, Willikens’ paintings summarize the material world of interiors. Raum 371 represents the interior of the studio of the artist Erich Buchholz, which is one of the first German interiors conceived systematically as a space-picture concept. Buchholz, who was affiliated with the Bauhaus artists, was influenced by De Stijl interior design principles in creating his studio as a unitarian “art space."
