Herbert Kaufmann is considered to be one of the pioneers of German Pop Art and master of the collage principle. In her sixth solo exhibition of the artist since 1972 the Galerie Poll is showing collages on canvas and paper from different decades, as well as two advertising pillars. With Inkrustation (1957) and Weiß-Grau-Weiß auf quadratischem Grund (1959) also two early works are presented. In 1953 Kaufmann founded together with fellow artists like Peter Brüning, Gerhard Hoehme et al. the artist association Group 53, a precursor of Zero.
