Extended painting.

Rudolf Stingel created an installation for the "New National Gallery" that transforms the character of the unique construction by Mies van der Rohe in an impressive manner. Among other things, the floor was covered with a carpet bearing an ornament originating from an Indian agra carpet to achieve this. The artist translates the colors into black, white and gray tones. The effect achieved, the changing grey on the sheer endless surface, is a prime example of Stingel's "extended painting".
The four new large-format paintings, likewise kept in Grisaille, show views of the Alps. Based on old photography and painted by Stingel with all traces of its wear and tear.
