The State of North Rhine-Westphalia acquired the impressive art collection of Konrad Fischer and his wife, comprising 250 works by some thirty-five artists, as well as the gallery archive, for the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen at the beginning of 2014. The exhibition catalogue now provides a summary of Konrad Fischer’s significant life’s work.

Auf dem Weg zum Bauhaus-Künstler.

Lyonel Feininger. Holzschnitte (German)
Despite the episodic brevity with which Lyonel Feininger produced his extensive series of woodcuts between 1918 and 1920, these works reflect the artist’s previous oeuvre in its entirety.
This exhibition and the accompanying book examine, for the first time ever, the complete range and radical development of form of Feininger’s woodcuts and evaluate them in the context of his complete oeuvre of paintings, watercolours and drawings.
The exhibition and book also address the extent to which Feininger’s intensive discourse with the woodcut in his painting during the Bauhaus years may have provided the impetus for a further sense of calm, monumentalisation and transparency.
