Although abstraction was the dominant tendency in the 1950s, some artists employed a form of figuration, no matter how far removed from everyday reality, as in this painting by the German artist Horst Antes. We see a human figure with relatively normal hands but with a strange green block for a head, without clear features. But the animal mask has them: one eye and a mouth.
