Deputy Director for Curatorial and Academic Affairs Klaus Ottmann introduces Karel Appel: A Gesture of Color in this short video. Of Appel, Ottmann says, “his fast rise as an artist was to a large extent due to his unabashed public persona and his direct painting style that provoked public and critical debates.”
