A quiet revolution is going on in contemporary painting; young artists are ignoring the taboos of modernism and delving into figurative painting. The exhibition >1000 Words at the Galerie Rothamel is staying abreast of this development. For five centuries European painting depicted histories, faces, and legends. As development began speeding up, modernism broke with this tradition and shifted the artistic snapshot, the shock, the emotional overwhelm, into focus. The longing for stories remained. The painters in the exhibition >1000 Words took up the challenge. Their narratives are complex, virtuoso—and astoundingly traditional.
