"Sigmar Polke is doubtlessly one of the most outstanding figures in contemporary art. The New York Times even assumes that he might perhaps be more influential than giants of American Post War Art like Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns or Robert Rauschenberg. The Museum of Modern Art in New York praised him as one of the 'most important and greatest artists of the 20th century."
