Watercolor on paper, featuring a deer, signed and attr. Joseph Beuys (German, 1921-1986) on the lower left corner, 9.4 x 7.5 in. (24 x 19 cm), Joseph Beuys was a leading German Conceptual and performance artist. Known for his highly original and controversial themes, his practice of “social sculpture” attempted to make art more democratic by collapsing the space between life and art. Today, the artist’s works are held in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Gallery in London, the Hamburger Banhof in Berlin, and the Kunstmuseum Basel, among others.
