Michael Triegel, whose paintings of religious subjects led him to receive a commission for an official portrait of Pope Benedict XVI, is one of the most important artists of the New Leipzig School, and this highly illustrated volume offers the first overview of his career to date. It reproduces more than 120 works, primarily paintings, created between 2003 and 2010, alongside preparatory sketches, drawings, watercolors, and etchings, while essays and commentaries set Triegel's work in context of contemporary trends and the cultural situation of Germany and Europe in the period.
