The Large Cloth of Abuse

ADDPMP666

An all-text painting by German painter and photographer Sigmar Polke, also known as The Great Bitching Sheet, or Das grosse Schimpftuch in German.

To create The Large Cloth of Abuse, Polke painted in black a series of German swear words and abusive terms onto several stitched-together sheets of flannel, to form a roughly 13-by-14-foot (3.9-by-4.2-metre) piece of fabric. Before this work was shown in a 1976 exhibition, Polke had his photograph taken wearing the piece as a cape.
