An important discovery among the many invitations i acquired recently. It is an original sketching by Förg for what presumably could be a wall drawing in one of the rooms of the Gemeentemuseum during and after his 2003 exhibition. In that time Förg was experimenting with loosely painted forms on canvas and walls.

On the painted paper sheet is the studio stamp of Günther Förg in Freiburg and the paper is devided into two parts. The upper part is painted with a deep green and handwritten the text Gemeentemuseum in blue ballpoint, underneath in pencil Den Haag 2003.  Left of the green a text in blue ballpoint ” Moikan (?)” The lower part of the design/drawing/painting is in a “leather brown” color and in pencil beside “Israel” is written . On the lowest part of the sheet the studio stamp in black ink.

My educated guess is that this is a proposal for a wall drawing in one of the rooms of the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and this highly collectable item is now available at www.ftn-books.com.
