Comment(s): Compositions comparable to our example, in watercolor and gouache, often sell at auction for substantially more than our modest pre-sale estimates. A similar image to our work was exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York City, in the exhibition “Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963–2010,” April 19–August 3, 2014. Polke is widely considered to be one of the most influential painters of the postwar era. Image copyright © The Estate of Sigmar Polke. [29947-3-16000]
