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.

„ … flying over borders“

The Painter Hermann Hesse
The 50th anniversary of the death of Hermann Hesse will be marked by the first-ever retrospective of his paintings, many of which are unknown. The production of art was always important to Hesse and his intense and complex visual language is crucial in comprehending his personal development, his understanding of art and his literary work.
Based on new research findings, this groundbreaking publication accompanying the Bern exhibition honours, for the first time ever, Hesse’s contribution to Modern art. Many works will be exhibited for the first time, allowing visitors to discover hitherto unknown facets of Hermann Hesse the painter.
