As early as the 1970s, Friedemann Hahn was working with adaptations from film, which he reformulated into his visual language in an expressive style. Wolfgang Heger wrote: "I encountered something foreign and at the same time familiar in the pictures. In Hahn's painting, in this gesture that even in figuration deliberately works with blurring, I suddenly encountered ... Hollywood film couples, ... with a mixture of absence and melancholy. What moved me was ... that I ... felt the same way about the couples from film noir: close and unapproachable at the same time, surrounded by a quiet melancholy. Even before the 'Neue Wilde,' Hahn demonstrated for West German painting of the 1980s that pathos could be portrayed in a contemporary way...." The 1941 film "High Sierra" he refers to a scene with Humphrey Bogart and Ida Lupino.
