Italian, 17th century, male.

Born 1600, in Genoa; died 28 July 1649, in Genoa.

Painter.

Genoese School.

A pupil of Luciano Borzone and Andrea Ansaldo. He may have visited Rome as a young man, but it is certain that he travelled there in 1639. His work was perhaps influenced for a time by that of Bernardo Strozzi and Cerano, but it was the painting of Caravaggio and Velázquez that made the strongest and most lasting impression. Formal simplification by means of bold use of chiaroscuro points undeniably to Caravaggio, although Assereto by no means sacrifices his own originality. His draughtsmanship is strong and decisive - to the point of being almost brutal - and his palette is curiously metallic, no doubt in a bid to enhance reflected light effects....

Born 1959, in Schwelm.

Painter (mixed media), draughtsman, sculptor. Figures.

Martin Assig won the Käthe Kollwitz Prize in 1993. In his work as a painter, he does not seek to interpret reality by reproducing its elements. His approach is more intellectual than it seems, at least as far as his paintings are concerned. He sees the reality of the world symbolically, even metaphysically, as artists did in the Middle Ages, a period of history he particularly enjoys. He manipulates images, sometimes taken from the press, and words, often taking as his subject the human body or parts of it - motifs that tend to be decorative - and develops a language that attempts to be universal. His art draws on the heritage of the German Expressionists, but also on the existential Realism of artists such as Zurbarán. His use of the ancient encaustic (hot wax) technique gives his colours a velvety, transparent quality....
