Norbert Prangenberg  (German, 1949-2012) 

whitespace
Norbert Prangenberg (German, 1949–2012) was a painter, printmaker, sculptor, and glass designer. From 1963 to 1967, Prangenberg completed his apprenticeship as a goldsmith in Cologne. He received a Mies van der Rohe-Stipendium, the Prize for Fine Arts of North Rhine-Westphalia, and the Bremer Kunstpreis. From 1993 to 2012, he was a professor of ceramics and glass at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste München. The artist lived and worked in Munich and Niederarnbach, Germany.

In the 1960s, Prangenberg created woodcuts and drawings, and later, linocuts. In the 1980s, he dealt with glazed clay sculptures and watercolor and oil paintings. In the 1970s, Prangenberg spent time working as a designer, and has been awarded several prizes.

Prangenberg dealt intensively with color, form, and structure. The intuitive and physical process is always part of his work. In many of his oil paintings and clay sculptures, his handwriting and his fingerprints can be seen.

His works have been exhibited frequently, and can be found in collections such as the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, the Weserburg Museum of Modern Art in Bremen, the Contemporary Art collection of the Federal Republic of Germany in Bonn, the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung in Munich, and and Museum of Glass in Immenhausen.
