Maria Lassnig

Maria Lassnig would have been 100 years old on 19th September 2019. The artist, who died in 2014, was one of the greatest artistic talents of the 20th century. With her body awareness pictures she found her own way between figuration and abstraction.

The Austrian collector Helmut Klewan recognised the exceptional art of Maria Lassnig at an early stage. He was one of the first to exhibit her works in Germany and consistently collected her pictures, drawings, watercolours and graphic works. This small display in which almost all the artist's work phases are represented focuses on the 1960s.
So bietet es sich an, diese Sammlung parallel zur Ausstellung »Die jungen Jahre der Alten Meister: Baselitz – Richter – Polke – Kiefer« in der Staatsgalerie zu zeigen.
