With a keen eye for uniquely contemporary locales of melancholy and alienation, Ingmar Alge (born 1971) updates German Romantic painting for the age of the “non-place.” He bases his hyper-realistic paintings on photographs, intensifying colors and veneering them with fine layers of glaze. This first monograph includes nearly 200 color plates, plus essays and an index of works.
