Pierrot Men was born in 1954 and was largely inspired by the 1970s. Conceptualism is often perceived as a response to Minimalism, and the leading art movement of the 1970s, challenging the boundaries of art with its revolutionary features. The movements that ensued were all characteristic of a strong desire to evolve and consolidate the art world, in response to the tensions of the previous decade.

In Germany, Expressive figure painting was given another chance for the first time since the weakening of Abstract Expressionism almost twenty years ago, the genre reclaimed its prominence through the brushstrokes of Gerhard Richter, Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz.
