With his liberation from traditional pictorial expression in favor of form, Winfred Gaul has belonged since the 1950s to that group of followers who were committed to free form and achieved a previously unheard-of autonomy of the painting process as well as the pictorial means used. Gaul is not primarily interested in the content of the picture, but exclusively in the pictorial means and the formal conclusions that can be derived from them. His group of works entitled "Color Manuscripts" clearly demonstrates his individual approach to the elements of type. Gaul writes the following in his artist diary: "A text is written, crossed out, rewritten, added to, overwritten, overdrawn. Words are accentuated or lost in the jungle of the illegible. Writing is covered with writing. Legible things give signals, illegible things force the eye to read. Writing and scribbles form a densely matted undergrowth in which the eye wanders, is stopped, irritated, and redirected.
