- Original: Dispersion paint on canvas 150 x 190 cm Froehlich Collection, Stuttgart © The Estate of Sigmar Polke / DACS, London
In the 1960s, Polke lifted the subjects for most of his paintings from printed adverts, in this case advertising a film featuring Elke Sommer (left). He would use a slide projector to blow these up onto canvas, then trace and paint each dot by hand. Certain areas of the painting have been worked into more heavily, distorting the subject and making it looser and more painterly.
