»Fire – Dance – Material«

Franz Grabmayr’s oeuvre (1927–2015) – comparable to that of Frank Auerbach or Yves Klein – is among those great works of abstract expressionism, abstract painting of the post-war era and postmodernism that are hardly valued or appreciated. In the 1980s, Grabmayr became a role model for the Neue Wilden. The book provides an excellent overview, conveys lasting meaning, and contains statements by fellow painters such as Siegfried Anzinger and Herbert Brandl, museum experts such as Ulrich Loock, Peter Pakesch, Klaus Albrecht Schröder and Wieland Schmied. It clearly highlights the reasons why Franz Grabmayr advanced to become venerated as an icon of painting and how his influence shaped the work of younger colleagues.
