Who Did the Painting in the Mayor’s Office?

When I saw a picture of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s office in the Chicago Tribune this morning, I was struck by the painting hanging behind his desk. It looks like an Anselm Kiefer, doesn’t it?  Click on this link to see a piece by Kiefer that seems similar to the painting in the mayor’s office.  Kiefer’s work is known to be smart, edgy, complex and confrontational.  Sound like anyone you know of?

Later in the day:  busted, I was wrong!  I received an email from the mayor’s political director, Thomas Bowen, identifying the artist and the piece. Click here for the correct answer!
