- His curiosity and affinity with great contemporary philosophers such as Michael Foucault resulted in a remarkable oeuvre, which is shown in a new light through over 70 works.

FRANKFURT. The painter Rene Magritte (1898-1967) was a conjurer of enigmatic paintings, is one of the key figures of the art of the 20th century. In a concentrated solo exhibition devoted to the great Belgian Surrealist, the Schirn Kunsthalle (Römerberg, 60311 Frankfurt) explores his relationship to the philosophical currents of his time. Magritte did not see himself as an artist, but rather as a thinking human being who conveyed his thoughts through his painting. Throughout his life he sought to imbue painting with meaning equal to that of language. Driven by his curiosity and his affinities with some of the leading philosophers of his age, such as Michael Foucault, he created a remarkable body of work and developed an altered view of the world that is reflected in a unique combination of masterfully precise painting and conceptual processes.

Das Museum Ludwig präsentiert die Ausstellung „Gerhard Richter. Neue Bilder” PDF Печат Е-поща

Gerhard Richter, Abstraktes Bild, 2016, Öl auf Alu, 27 x 35,5 cm, © Gerhard Richter 2016 (221116)Seit über 50 Jahren arbeitet der Künstler an der fulminanten Erneuerung der Malerei.

KÖLN. Anlässlich des 85. Geburtstages von Gerhard Richter am 9. Februar 2017 stellt das Museum Ludwig erstmals 26 abstrakte Bilder vor, die alle im letzten Jahr entstanden. Leuchtende Farbigkeit und differenzierte, vielschichtige Kompositionen kennzeichnen die neuen Bilder, die meist auf Leinwand in ganz verschiedenen Formaten gemalt sind. Mit Pinsel, Spachtel, Rakel und Messer bearbeitet der Künstler die in mehreren Schichten aus Ölfarbe aufgebauten Bilder; seine lange Erfahrung - auch in der Einbeziehung des Zufalls in den Entstehungsprozess - führt zu detailreichen und äußerst komplexen Kompositionen. Der Zweifel an der Darstellbarkeit von Realität und die Frage nach der Bedeutung des gemalten Bildes liegen Richters Schaffen zugrunde.
