Ruprecht von Kaufmann

Ruprecht von Kaufmann’s figurative paintings are awash in dramatic lighting and deep tonal palettes, resulting in expressionistic, cinematic works. His melancholic canvases are imbued with mysterious, absurdist narrative details, featuring lonely travelers, ghostlike circus scenes, and theatrical tableaux full of enigmatic motifs and details. Kaufmann frequently leaves his subjects faceless and open to interpretation. He has exhibited in New York, London, Berlin, Prague, Hamburg, Milan, and Seattle. Kaufmann’s works are in the collections of the Federal Republic of Germany, the Deutsche Bundestag Art Collection, the Hort Family Collection, and the Uziyel Family Collection.

Born in 1974 in Munich, lives and works in Berlin
