Small Masterpieces

30 March, 2017 to 01 March, 2018


Staatliche Museen zu Berlin
Bodestraße, Berlin, Berlin 10178

Bold studies on nature, travel pictures and animal motifs document the joy of the artists in the inconspicuous, their enthusiasm for form, color and haptics, of light and weather in a constant alternation. Composition and picture designs as well as character studies provide insights into the way the artist works. Accurately observed, concise portraits and self-portraits, on the other hand, go back to the details of miniature painting. Thus, the exhibited works open up a diverse spectrum of aesthetic interests ranging from the Enlightenment to Romanticism to Realism and Pre-Impressionism.

The restoration of the works was supported generously by the Hermann Reemtsma Foundation as part of the "Art in Stock" initiative.
