Robert Mangold (born in 1937) is a great innovator of art in the second half of the 20th century. Since the 1960s, he has been creating unique paintings with a large-scale effect, irritating forms and unusual colors. He placed the elements of painting in a tense relationship to one another, to the space and to the observers, and thus brought forth a completely new effect in paintings. Urs Raussmüller included Mangold’s works in the Hallen für Neue Kunst since its founding in 1983/84.
