Literature: Walter Stöhrer. Catalog raisonné of paintings 1957-1999, Berlin 2008, p. 465 (cat.-no. 96.42).

The untitled painting from 1996 is one of Walter Stöhrer's most colorful works. The opulent cascades of color in partly clear, partly blurred shades of yellow, red and blue are in conflict with figurative signs - ghostly whimsical head creatures - that rise above the rush of color in their agility and dynamism, even in their lightness. An ink drawing is pasted in the lower left - as an abstract image within an image. Since Stöhrer usually collaged realistic depictions from trade journals with erotic, political, or artistic motifs into his paintings, this picture-within-a-picture theme could indicate a programmatic character, which is why Stöhrer may have dispensed with a title here, as he does without literary references. In any case, Stöhrer concentrates here on purely painterly versus graphic means in an exorbitant balance - despite the highly energetic effect.
