Chosen by prestigious international critics, artists, authors, and collectors—including Wieland Speck, Ralf König, Slava Mogutin, and Edward Lucie-Smith—the works gathered in this collection are exemplars of Rinaldo Hopf’s ability to so vividly portray the figure of the “trickster”—the swindlers, rascals, knaves and other individuals who do not abide by the rules and are free from the constraint of traditional gender roles and propriety.
Beginning with the installation Moulin Rouge, which Hopf completed over the course of 13 years, the book showcases the artist’s work through a range of aquarelles, poster overpaintings, mural and ceiling paintings, and journey pictures. In their contributing texts, the selectors explain why they feel drawn to a particular work, reflecting in their personal opinions the art’s charisma and transcendent quality.
