From 1950 to 1952 as a student of Willi Baumeister in Stuttgart and from 1952 to 1954 for study purposes in Paris, Peter Brüning, not yet 30 years old, was one of the youngest pioneers of German Informel and gained early international recognition. Marie-Luise Otten has called him a "lyricist of German Informel". His lyrical, gestural handwriting, which makes Brüning's paintings unmistakable, expresses a conception of nature that is determined by artistic problems such as movement, time, space, and the syntax of his gestural "signs. Brüning's oil painting "No. 80" from 1961, which was created at the height of his early informal phase, is convincing because of the balanced combination, confrontation and interweaving of thin painting strokes with broad brushstrokes soaked in oil paint, which stand out almost in relief from the canvas. Poetic streaks of color and fleeting abbreviations meet bold areas of color and unite to create an individual landscape moment.
