Documenta 5 Artist from Germany



The German-born (*1940 in Templin) lived and worked since 1974 in Caracas/ Venezuela, where he died on 23.10.2019. His last exhibition was held under the heading "The Dignity of Silence" at the eine art gallery in Cologne.
Jorge Stever, painter and sculptor, as he is often described, is one of our most famous plastic artists, pontor and sculptor, who completed his studies in philosophy and art history in Frankfurt and Munich (Germany). In 1972 he participated in "Documenta 5″ (Kassel, Germany) and in 1973 he exhibited with Jasper Johns at the Darmstadt Museum and Kunsthalle in Cologne, the Museum of Modern Art in Helsinki, the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm and the Weingarten Gallery in Stockholm. This year he lived in Venezuela and has since exhibited as a Venezuelan artist. His work is related to lyrical abstraction or new realism, with clear influences of informalism. He was published in numerous publications in Europe and America as one of the precursors of hyperrealism. In 1974 he exhibited again at the Weingarten Gallery in Stockholm, together with Lynn Chadwick, and at the Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, where he received the National Painting Prize that year. He also participates in the III Triennial of New Delhi (India), where he receives the gold medal.
