Arnulf Rainer, “Lanzarote 2007”, mixed media on photography, signed
signed and dated bottom right: A. Rainer 07 on reverse titled: Lanzarote
Arnulf Rainer was spending most of the winter of the past decades on the island of Tenerife and therefore travelled the Canaries thoroughly. Photographic impressions of Tenerife, but also Lanzarote and the other islands, he edited artistically with his specific signature style, the so called ‘over-paintings’ (Übermalungen). With his colorful additions and veil-like brushwork, the artist expresses his emotions whilst looking at the photographic scenery. With great sensitivity Rainer enhances the original photographies, similar to his approach as seen in the interventions of the Piranesi prints or the “veil paintings” (Schleierbilder).
