At the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s, German art, more specifically West German painting, achieved a spectacular and surprising presence on the national and international art market. These artists were often referred to as 'Neo-expressionists' or 'New Wilds'. Many of the painters who became internationally acknowledged during this time are represented in this book. The works of artists who did not follow this particular path are also discussed. Since the Berlin Wall came down on 9 November 1989, the art scene in Germany has been stimulated also by a large number of artists who have been living and working in the former German Democratic Republic.
