About the work

Anne Imhof’s artistic practice is characterized by a profound fascination with the human form, and her works are connected by recurring gestures, symbolisms or postures and movement of the body. Though her work is inherently multifaceted and continues to expand into ever more media, painting and drawing remains a consistent through-line within her oeuvre. The untitled pencil on paper work depicts a kneeling figure with a dolphin draped over its back and shoulders. Animals are a recurring motif throughout Imhof’s work and are linked to her fascination with Greek mythology. They occur as human companions, have symbolic significance and reinforce Imhof’s penchant for eluding singular interpretation. Rather, they conjure multiple associations and indicate other forms of experiences and emotions.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
