One of the most renowned painters of the German New Figuration movement, Dieter Krieg, was born in 1937 in Lindau and died in 2005 in Bergheim. Studying under HAP Grieshaber and Herbert Kitzel, Krieg obtained his education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Karlsruhe (1958-62), where he lectured a decade later (1972). The 1960s came out to be a decisive period for his artistic development and recognition, marked by several accolades and a number of individual exhibitions, starting with the Kunstverein in Karlsruhe (1966) and Galerie Der Spiegel in Cologne (1967, 1968, and later). However, the apex of his career was yet to come. Following the Documenta in Kassel (1977), the artist represented Germany at the Venice Biennale, contributing to the national pavilion (1978), and the same year, he started to lecture at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf (through 2002); some of his students became prolific artists, among them are Johannes Hüppi, Cornelius Völker, Arno Bojak, and Matthias Meyer, and many others. Most recently, his work has been exhibited at the Museum of Current Art in Durbach (2012), China Art Museum in Shanghai, Kunstmuseum in Stuttgart (both 2014), and the Kunsthalle Gießen (2015).
