Hermann Goepfert, who mainly worked in Frankfurt am Main, is considered the most important representative of the ZERO movement. After completing his studies at the Städelschule, he turned to non-objective painting. His monochrome „white paintings“, painted from 1960, attracted great interest. In the 1960s, international artists came to the city on the river Main to exchange ideas with or collaborate with Goepfert. Among his artist friends were Lucio Fontana, Piero Manzoni and Jef Verheyen. From the early sixties he took part in important presentations around the ZERO group, such as the exhibition "NUL" in the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam or the documenta III in Kassel.
