The German artist Klaus Zylla, born Cottbus in 1953, currently lives and works in Berlin and Reguengo Pequeno (Portugal).
This 128-page catalog was published in 2008 by Die Galerie, Frankfurt for a travelling exhibition of the artist which was on display at Die Galerie, Frankfurt/Main, 12/3-7/6/2008; ESPACIO D-14, Madrid, July-August 2008; Galeria SKL, Palma de Mallorca, 26/9-30/11/2008; GalleriModenArte, Modena, February-March 2009; Galleri Astley, Uttersberg/S, April-June 2009; Kunstsammlung Jena, 21/6-23/8/2009; and Ludwig Museum Koblenz, September-October 2009. The catalog included texts by Eberhard Piltz, Beate Reifenscheid, Erik Stephan, Maurizio Vanni and Peter Femfert — and I did the German to English translations.
Below is a slightly larger reproduction of the Zylla painting used on the publication's cover, Rückzug mit Bukephalos (2006), or "Retreating with Bucephalus". (For those of you who are a bit shaky when it comes to your history, Bucephalus was the horse of Alexander the Great; one of the most famous horses of antiquity, it supposedly met its end after the Battle of the Hydaspes River in 326 BC, in what is now modern Pakistan.)
