Notes: Martin Kippenberger and Michel Würthle met in 1979, the year after Kippenberger moved from Hamburg to Berlin and founded "Kippenberger's Office" with Gisela Capitain as an exhibition space. Würthle was the owner of the Paris Bar, one of Berlin's most well-known restaurants even today. In 1979, Kippenberger donated works of his own to his friend's restaurant for permanent loan. In 1991, the year before this painting in homage to his friend, Kippenberger added works by other artists to the Paris Bar exhibition, including Louise Lawler, Laurie Simmons, Barbara Ess and Zoe Leonard.
