This is one of the artists who was included within the stack of German artists books i bought recently. What characterizes Notthoff works is the bright colors that are used in all his works. Making these joyful , colorful paintings which resemble a bit the Hard Edge paintings from the early Seventies. Of course not hard edge but more Pop Art like, but still colorful compositions. Far less complicated and intriguing than the paintings by Richard Schur , which i recently acquired, but still nice and colorful abstract paintings and worthwhile to check out if you can.
