A.R. Penck’s visual language, developed in the early 1960s, is seminal to Keith Haring (1958-1990), who explored the art of his German colleague exhibited early in the 1980s in New York. Penck created this portrait of his artist collegue, as a final tribute to Haring, who had passed away at a young age the year before. The candles in the drawing refer to Haring’s death.
