John Baldessari (1931 – 2020)

We mourn the loss of the outstanding conceptual artist John Baldessari, whose extensive oeuvre had a lasting influence on the progress of art history from the 1960/1970s up to today. On January 2, Baldessari passed away at the age of 88 in Venice, California.

As a generous supporter, Baldessari donated his work „Study for a Red Intruder (Blue)“ to the Sigmund Freud Museum in 1989, which will be on display from May 2020 in the newly opened presentation of the museum's art collection.
