COPLEY exhibition in Baden-Baden

From 18 February to 10 June 2012, the Frieder Burda Museum in the spa town of Baden-Baden is presenting COPLEY, an exhibition of 80 paintings by William N. Copley from between 1947 and 1994. The American was well known as a gallery owner, artist, author and publisher, and contributed to the documenta art exhibition in Kassel in 1972 and 1982. He was one of the most unconventional personalities in the art world and has been considered an important mediator between the tradition of Dada, surrealism and American pop art since the 1940s.
