Expressionism and New Acquisitions
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,-).
