Autumn 2023 / Spring 2024
Paintings, watercolors and sculptures from the 20th and 21st centuries
In our Autumn 2023 / Spring 2024 exhibition we show high-quality paintings, watercolours and sculptures of the 20th and 21st centuries. Represented are Otto Modersohn and Fritz Overbeck as landscape painters of the Worpswede artist colony, the Brücke Expressionists – Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff – with brilliantly colourful works, Lyonel Feininger with a delicately hued watercolour from his late work as well as the adoptive Sylt resident Siegward Sprotte with abstracted sea views and a luxuriant floral still life. Rupprecht Geiger, Karl Otto Götz, Heinz Mack, Bernard Schultze, Heinrich Siepmann and Fred Thieler complete the selection with outstanding works on canvas and paper in a non-representational language of form. Also to be seen are sculptures by Ernst Barlach, the most important Expressionist sculptor of the interwar era, as well as spectacular Implosions by Ewerdt Hilgemann, created with the help of a vacuum pump.
