Since she was a teenager, Sabine Liebchen was impressed from an Gerhard Richter exhibition at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf and in 1978 she had the chance to meet Richter in his own atelier. This and further influences like Manet's blue-green shadows, Edward Hopper's use of light and shadow as well as the directed lighting from Vermeer find in Sabine Liebchen's works a contemporary continuation. The works are images with a clean esthetic and no pomp, whose figures are captured in a supposed spontan movement and love for details strait to a baroque appearance. 

 "With body shadows masterly painted and light fields she creates an illusion of reality, whose air and atmosphere -like after a purifying thundershower- appear clear and transparent. (...) This way she creates images whose protagonists, thought their outfits, clearly show their reference to the present time. On the other side, the artist takes good care that they remain anonymous."

-Klaus Sebastian

 The artworks from Sabine Liebchen complete collections in Museums, like the Schering Museum in The Netherlands or collections like the HGN Duderstadt and the APO Bank Düsseldorf. The paintings are specifically valued in private collections, a reason for them to be in great demand and rarely available.
