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.

Franz Gertsch

Franz Gertsch is one of the most important Swiss artists today. In celebration of the artist’s eighty-fifth birthday, a catalog that provides a substantial look at his innovative work is being published. All too quickly categorized as a photorealist, Gertsch turns out to be an artist who is more interested in profundity and concentration than glittering surfaces. This is particularly obvious in his monumental woodcuts, which form the heart of this publication. Their motifs—gigantic, enlarged leaves or streams of water—cohere out of thousands of tiny points of light in right front of the viewer’s eyes.
