Über das Werk

Rolf Cavael is among the chief exponents of the German Informel movement. After having worked for many years as a graphic artist, he began to fashion predominantly small-format abstract works which revealed his pre-occupation with the Bauhaus movement and the influence of Wassily Kandinsky. Together with Willi Baumeister, Gerhard Fietz, Rupprecht Geiger, Willi Hempel, Brigitte Matschinsky-Denninghoff and Fritz Winter, he founded ZEN 49 in 1949, a Munich-based group of non-figurative artists.
Initially, Cavael painted primarily dark floating forms over a monochrome ground, before gradually adopting a brighter palette to create more open, linear and dynamic coloured forms. In the 1970s his compositions, including this present water-colour, which was painted over a lithograph, became "lighter, more lyrical and more liberated in their visual associations. Cavael attaches less priority to the elements and configurations, and more to evoking a tranquil presence."
