Work in Focus: Krenek Watercolours
With the Krenek exhibition Lentos presents a rarity, since Krenek’s visual creative work, his watercolor painting, has never been shown before to this extent. By his own definition, Krenek was a hobby painter with no claim to professionalism. That his love for watercolor accompanied him throughout his life (especially in his second home in the US) is clear from the selection taken from over 80 paintings. The presentation is supplemented with works by Krenek’s contemporaries, such as Alma Mahler and Oskar Kokoschka. A listening station, film material and literature to browse through round out the exhibition.
