Gunter Christmann in The Field Revisited

Gunter Christmann's work is included in The Field Revisited, the restaging of the landmark 1968 exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. 

"The Field opened to much controversy and helped launch the careers of a generation of Australian artists, including Sydney Ball, Peter Booth, Janet Dawson and Robert Jack" NGV

 

Pictured above is Rubezahl, 1967 which exists on the reverse of Canberra, 1975. Gunter Christmann commonly reused his canvases, as he has here.
