Moody scenes captured in electric colors, Trenkler’s paintings invite viewers to get lost in his world.

Leif Trenkler is regarded as one of the most important German painters of the new figuration movement, which revived figurative art after a period dominated by abstraction. Trenkler is known internationally for his technicolor landscapes, nuanced technique, and unusual medium of oil paint on wood. Inspired by his extensive travels, Trenkler’s paintings transport viewers to places of longing: silent riverbanks, Hockney-esque pool scenes, and pictures of clear, starry nights. This attractively designed volume features more than one hundred color illustrations of work from over thirty years, complemented and contextualized by subtle essays from art critics Stephanie Götsch and Gottfried Knapp.
