Crowd of demonstrators from the series 'crowds', in which Danz represents different variations during the period from 2004-2007, similar works by Danz fetch up to 5,000 euros at international auctions

This large-size oil painting by Swiss artist Pascal Danz was created in 2005. It shows a motif from the series 'crowds', in which Danz presents groups of people in different variations, as in this picture at a demonstration, in the years from 2004 to 2007. The main feature of his work is to present matters of minor importance as the main subject and thus to direct the focus on the more interesting spaces that appear as white spots, and further encourage the viewers to fill these spots themselves. As a result, in his pictures occurs at first a subtle but at the same time dynamic tension between object and abstraction, which is always to be re-discovered.

The painting is signed and dated verso 'Danz '05' and is in very good condition. It is framed by a black picture rail and measures 124 x 164 cm. The dimensions of the stretcher are 120 x 160 cm.
