Why a blog on Mumprecht…. first reason is this artist is too long a forgotten artists. He rose to some fame in the 60’s while he was showing his works at gallery Berggruen/Paris, but was forgotten again . The second reason is that this artist reached the age of 100 years on the 1st of January 2018. It made me take up the Berggruen catalogue again and examine it carefully and noticed that this special catalogue is filled with 14(!) original “pochoirs” prints making it an outstanding and highly collectable artist catalogue. Mumprecht deserves better.
His works are great and typical for the 50’s and 60’s and being one of the original Berggruen “stable” artists his works will probably also become much more expensive in the decades to come. The Berggruen catalogue is now available at www.ftn-books.com
