Work by Klemens Figlhuber: Untitled

Karl Schmidt-Rottluff, Expressionism and New Acquisitions

29 April to 27 September 2004

This collection, which comes from close friends of the artist and was donated to Lentos in 2003, concentrates specifically on the multifaceted work of Karl Schmidt-Rottluff. Ten sculptures and crafted objects, seven drawings and nineteen print graphic works (lithographs/woodcuts/etchings) convey a characteristic insight into an oeuvre ranging over half a century.

The Schmidt-Rottluff exhibition is complemented by works from German and Austrian Expressionism from the Lentos Collection. A selection of the most recent acquisitions of contemporary art is shown in a separate exhibition space, as is the newly acquired large light object by Klemens Figlhuber.

A catalogue is published for the exhibition with forty pictures and essays by Peter Baum, Elisabeth Nowak-Thaller, Angelika Gillmayr and Christina Hainzl (Euro 14,-, reduced Euro 11,-).
