Sigmar Polke has passed away from complications of cancer. Polke’s inprint can be traced back to his contributions to the Capitalist Realism movement that helped to revitalize contemporary art practices in post-war Germany. Though often recognized for his contributions Pop Art, his work wildly swayed between the figurative cultural appropriations of that style and abstraction. Polke was 69.
