Born in 1956 in Merano, Italy, and based in New York since 1987, Rudolf Stingel is one of the most internationally-celebrated painters of his generation. From the onset, his way of working has been hallmarked by a substantive exploration of the medium of painting, and of the principles and forms of representation that constitute it.

He has exhibited internationally, with solo shows including those at Palazzo Grassi, Venice (2013); Secession, Vienna (2012); and LIVE at the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin (2010); and a major retrospective at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2007). Other major solo shows include those at the Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (2004) and the Museo d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Trento, Italy (2001).

His work was included in the 2003, 1999 and 1993 Venice Biennales.
