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.

Henry Moore

The English sculptor Henry Moore (1898-1986) has examined the relationship between humanity and nature more intensively than almost any other twentieth-century artist. Moore’s artistic imagination brought forth new structures, based around existing natural shapes (tree trunks, bones, mussels, elephant skulls, etc.), and transformed these into meaningful contemporary on nature.
