Impressive, large-scale nude of Bernhard Heisig's master student Hubertus Giebe; similar works of Giebe have sold for up to 8,500 euros in the international market

The present oil painting is the work of the Dresden artist Hubertus Giebe, and dates from 1999. Executed in Giebe's typical expressive style of painting, this large-scale work shows a female nude in pink-red coloring. This range is varied only in the background and in the lighted areas. The unusual coloring and the life-size format of the sitter make this nude painting a striking eye-catcher. Also, the sitter's posture - provocative and reserved at the same time - gives this composition a fascinating visual effect.

The painting is signed and dated upper left, 'Giebe 99', as well as inscribed 'Giebe' on the stretcher. Verso there is an exhibition note from the gallery Hühn, Gevelsberg, from the year 2000. The painting is in very good condition with only minimal wear. The black wood frame is also in good condition, showing a few small nicks. The overall dimensions with frame are 182 x 81 cm. The stretcher measures 175 x 75 cm.

Hubertus Giebe (b. 1953)
From 1969 to 1972, the German painter and graphic artist Hubertus Giebe attended evening courses in painting and graphic art at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden with Ursula Rzodeczko and Gerhard David. In 1974, he met Erwin and Eva Strittmatter, who became his close friends and collaborators to some of his works. From 1974 to 1976, Giebe studied painting and graphic art at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. Since 1976, he worked as a freelance painter and graphic artist. In 1978, Giebe completed his studies with an external degree at the Leipzig Academy of Visual Arts. He then spent a year as a master student of Bernhard Heisig. From 1982 to 1986, he directed together with Johannes Heisig the basic course for painting and graphic art at the Dresden Academy. From 1987 to 1991, Giebe was a lecturer in painting and graphics at the Academy. Giebe has become especially known in Germany for his illustrations of the 'Blechtrommel' by Günter Grass. In 1990, he exhibited at the Venice Biennale, which brought him international reputation. In 2002, the Berlin National Gallery bought his painting 'Der Widerstand - für Peter Weiss' (1986). Currently, the Gallery Villa Hühn, Gevelsberg, manages the artist's oeuvre, organizing exhibition in galleries and museums.
