Herta Günther posthumously on her 90th birthday - End of the exhibition

Herta Günther (1934 - 2018) posthumously on her 90th birthday: oil paintings, pastels, drawings, color etchings - new works from the estate

We would like to celebrate the end of this highly acclaimed exhibition with you at a closing event on Friday, June 7, 2024 from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm!

The daily press has already reported in praise of our exhibition:

Dr. Christel Heybrock wrote about her painting in the Mannheimer Morgen on April 17:

“Realistic, and indeed figurative, her painting was always, but it also contained a very individual, half ironic, half melancholic distance. [...] They are mostly situations of a wider or narrower public, whereby the most striking feature is the lack of relationship between the people.”

Sigrid Feeser further characterized in the Rheinpfalz of 19 April: “A muted colorfulness, unobtrusively balanced, holds together a painting that is based on a great mastery of craftsmanship and also masters the delicate pastel. The fact that Herta Günther printed her color etchings herself in small editions is part of this.”

Come along to the end of the exhibition on Friday, June 7 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. and immerse yourself in Herta Günther's pictorial world one last time.

You are very welcome!

Emilio Vedova: Ciclo

This recently acquired work by the Italian painter Emilio Vedova from 1962-63 is a special piece, indeed a rarity. The painting, measuring 32.5 x 43.5 cm, dates from Vedova's best creative phase and combines all the characteristic aspects of his gestural painting: black, white and all the shades of grey in between are his coloristic thinking and craft. Where color is added, it is an interjection, response or extension, but not the origin. Dynamic painting, eruptive discharge as if under power.

Vedova knows how to create spaces and thus - like a sculpture - work into the three-dimensional pictorial space and break it up. 

We are delighted to be able to offer you this special and striking work. HERE you will find further information.

Gerhard Altenbourg - Auf den Zinnen von Troja

Freshly arrived, we would like to present this extraordinary graphic work, a unique piece: “”Auf den Zinnen von Troja” was created in 1960 as a large-format unique work. The woodcut on nettle measures 66 x 148 cm and is partially finished with oil paint. The basis for this unique piece is a printing block (WVZ H56), which was used for 4 other versions on this theme (see WVZ). Our unique copy is the original version. Gerhard Altenbourg himself wrote a handwritten poem with the same title:

Auf den Zinnen von Troja - längst verebbtes Moos - in der aufgerollten Zeit - Spule aus Granit - perloner Faden im Laubengrün - zwischen Felsennelken - wo sich ein Stein gefunden - aus dem vorgewölbten Zeitenschoß - Dieser Stein lallte Eia eia - weil er von seiner Geburt sprach - brachte er der Finder ihn ins Museum für Urgeschichte - dort war er stumm
