This exhibition brings together for the first time two collections, each containing works of great value from all phases of expressionist work in Germany from 1905 to 1937.
Consisting of about 140 of August Macke, Christian Rohlfs, Conrad Felixmüller, Cuno Amiet, Emil Nolde, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Franz Marc, Gabriele Münter, Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Ludwig Meidner, Lyonel Feininger, Max Liebermann, Max Pechstein, Otto Mueller, Walther Bötticher and Wassily Kandinsky’s most important works, the exhibition aims to showcase the heritage and, above all, the multiple influences of these artists, but also to examine the history of the artistic avant-garde.
The artistic movement of Expressionism developed at the beginning of the 20th century in the German-speaking regions. In the juxtaposition of colours, abstract shapes and a distance from traditional pictorial methods, reality is represented as an indivudal experience. In search of paradise, expressionists are looking for new models of life and identity and are announcing a return to a life in harmony wih nature.
Torn between the conservatism of the society of the time, the rapid industrialization and the social change that followed, they challenged existing systems and often found their new models of life in contact with other cultures.
From 29/06 to 29/09/2019, daily between 10 am and 6 pm.
Adult: 8 to 10 €, Child: 0 to 8 €.
