His most famous work is probably the Field Hare (1502). Mainly he devoted himself to the Copperplate and the template drawing for the Woodcut. Especially the copper engraving he tried very early; the first dated sheet is from 1497, which was certainly preceded by several others. From this time also come: The Revelation of John (1498), a series of 16 woodcuts, Adam and Eve (1504), a copperplate engraving and The prodigal son with the pigs (c. 1496)(Fig.), whose animal representation was decisive for the backbreeding of the so-called Albrecht Dürer Pig was.

In his extensive work, Beuys dealt with questions of the Humanism, the Social Philosophy and Anthroposophy apart. This led to his specific definition of a "expanded concept of art"[2] and to the conception of the Social plastic as Total work of artby creatively participating in the design of the Society and in the Politics demanded. He is regarded worldwide as one of the most important action artists of the 20th century and, according to his biographer Reinhard Ermen, as an "ideal-typical antagonist" Andy Warhols to see.[3]

In 1951, Ewald Mataré appointed Joseph Beuys to be his Master student. Together with Erwin Heerich, Beuys moved into his master student studio under the roof of the art academy until 1954.

Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, from 1982 Marqués de Dalí de Púbol (* May 11 1904 in FigueresCataloniaSpain; † January 23 1989 ibid), was a spanish PainterGraphic designerWriterSculptor and Set designer. As one of the main representatives of the Surrealism he is one of the most famous painters of the 20th century. Around the year 1929 Dalí had found his personal style and genre, the world of the Unconsciousthat appears in dreams. Melting clocks, crutches and burning giraffes became identifying features in Dalí's painting. His painterly technical skill allowed him to paint his canvases in an Old Master style reminiscent of the later Photorealism reminded.

Dalí's most frequent themes, apart from the world of dreams, are those of intoxication, fever, and religion; often in his paintings his wife is Gala depicted. Dalí's sympathy for the Spanish dictator Francisco Franco, its eccentric His behavior as well as his late work often led to controversies in the evaluation of his person and his works up to the present day.

In 1931 Dalí painted one of his most famous works, The permanence of memory, also Soft Watches or Melting Clocks called. It depicts four melting pocket watches set in the Catalan countryside in front of the rugged cliffs of Cap de Creus are arranged. In 1954 Dalí took up the motif again and reworked the clock theme in Dissolution of the permanence of memory.

Keith Allen Haring (* May 4 1958 in ReadingPennsylvania; † February 16 1990 in New York City) was a US ArtistHis painting style is recognizable by its clear lines and two-dimensionality. Some methods of his painting he took from the Graffiti-Scene.[1] Haring is considered a representative of the Pop art the 1980s.

Haring made the first of his so-called "Subway Drawings" in December 1980 and continued them until about 1985. The corridors of the system of New York subway are equipped with numerous advertising boards. When the boards are not covered with current advertising posters, the fixed frame is covered with black Waste paper as a kind of placeholder. Haring painted these with white Blackboard chalk. A medium that is easy to transport and inexpensive to purchase, it allowed him to apply his typical continuous line to the black paper quickly, evenly and with extremely high contrast. In addition, no prior preparation in the studio was necessary, which benefited Haring's intuitive and fast style.[9] He always conceived his pictures in the subway corridors in a similar way. First a rectangle was drawn as a picture boundary, sometimes these were still numbered, hereby the appearance of a Comic-Strips awakened. Then they were filled with his typical motifs (barking dogs, UFOs, ray baby, TV, crosses, people, etc.).

Haring repeatedly emphasized that he deliberately did not give his Subway works titles so as not to provide viewers with an interpretation dictated by the artist. According to Haring, his works do not have just one meaning or interpretation, but are as diverse as the people who view them and engage with them.[10] The forms that his works contain are not foreign, but easily recognizable, so that even without a given title, any viewer can quickly make up his or her own Association can develop. Moreover, his motifs in the New York subway are conceived primarily for a passing public, who can grasp the composition of the image even by a cursory glance.[11] Haring painted without sketches or studies, quickly and spontaneously from his feelings without changes. Thus he could create up to thirty Subway Drawings a day, which added up to a total of about five to ten thousand paintings made in the New York subway system from 1980 to 1985.[12] His depictions were mostly made by the photographer he was friends with Tseng Kwong Chi held.[13]

Yves Klein is considered to be Avantgarde-artists and as a precursor of the Pop art. In addition, he organized his first performances (Action art). Klein wrote essays and made several films. Best known are his monochrome Image compositions, in particular those that he developed in a process known as the International Small Blue (IKB, =PB29, =CI 77007) patented Ultramarine blue but also in gold and pink. Typical for Klein is a quiet, meditative way of working.

Yves Klein's blue sponge reliefs for the Musiktheater im Revier in Gelsenkirchen

From 1957 Klein developed the Anthropometrics with models who painted the canvas with their bodies naked and soaked in blue paint. For this, the first major event took place in 1960 at the Galerie Internationale d'Art Contemporain in Paris, the performance Anthropometry of the Blue Epoch took place. For this purpose, an orchestra played a piece composed by Klein, the Monotone symphonywhich consisted of only one sound. Klein created his largest and most important works between 1957 and 1959 in the new building of the Musiktheaters im Revier in Gelsenkirchen. In collaboration with the architect Werner Ruhnau and other artists, he developed large wall-high blue reliefs especially for this building, some of which were set with natural sponges. He also produced designs for an unrealized theater forecourt, the "Fire-Water-Air Square." For this he experimented among other things with Air curtains from strong air currents that could keep out rain, for example, like a pane of glass.

From 1957 dematerialized his art more and more, until in 1958, in the Parisian gallery Iris Clert presented the whitewashed gallery space he had emptied as an immaterial exhibition of his blue monochromes. The exhibition was titled Le vide ("The Void"). He thus became part of the contemporary movement of Concept art.

Joan Miró i Ferrà [ʒuˈan miˈɾo i fəˈra] (* April 20 1893 in BarcelonaCatalonia; † December 25 1983 in Palma) was a spanishcatalan PainterGraphic designerSculptor and Ceramist.

His early works, building on Catalan folk art, show influences of the Cubism and of the Fauvism on. From the early to mid-1920s, the artist completed in Paris, influenced by the prevailing art movements there of the Dadaism and Surrealism, the fundamental change in style that led him away from representationalism. Miró belongs as a representative of the Classical Modern with his imaginative pictorial motifs is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. His magical symbols for moon, stars, bird, eye and woman are among the most famous elements of his art. The disturbing late work, such as the series Toiles brûlées (Burnt canvases) was a staged destruction, a protest against the commercialization of art, and an expression of his demand to "murder painting". In public space, for example, his ceramic walls adorn the UNESCO-building in Paris and the Wilhelm Hack Museum in Ludwigshafen am Rhein; monumental sculptures have been erected in squares in Barcelona and Chicago, among other places.

Leonardo da Vinci, the artist, architect, thinker, engineer, philosopher and doctor went down in history as the epitome of the universal genius. Today, his name is closely associated with the portrait of the Mona Lisa and other famous paintings, not only among people interested in art. Although Leonardo da Vinci created some of the most significant and at the same time innovative works of the Renaissance, his achievements go far beyond his artistic work. His sketches and studies bear witness to a man who, as early as the 15th century, was intensively involved with cutting-edge technical solutions that were only implemented many centuries later by other visionaries and revolutionized the human world. 

Raphael gained fame primarily as a painter for his harmonious and balanced compositions and lovely paintings of the Madonna. During his lifetime he enjoyed the privilege of being known only by his first name, and even today few people know his last name. Until well into the 19th century, he was considered the greatest painter of all time.[1] Besides his career as a painter in Florence and at the papal court in Rome he also became site manager of the St. Peter's Basilica and overseer of the Roman antiquities.
