About the Work

Who is Volker Böhringer? Today, only specialists know the name of this artist from Esslingen, who had affinities with both Surrealism and New Objectivity. Böhringer was banned by the National Socialists from exhibiting and painting even before he had been able to establish himself on the market and had to abandon his training at the Academy in Stuttgart. Böhringer's mysterious industrial landscapes raise questions. Surrounded by curious objects, the girl scratching the head of the billy goat looks strangely lost. Nor does the crumpled newspaper entitled 'Bote' (Messenger) provide any clarification. It merely conceals the artist's monogram.
