At a time when blank spots have by and large disappeared from maps, “wilderness” has returned in art. The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt has dedicated an extensive theme-based exhibition to this recurring fascination.


Flurry of Light

Winter in Impressionism
The extraordinarily harsh European winters of the 1870s and 1890s are uniquely reflected in the impressionistic landscape painting of that time.
Over 60 winter landscapes by renowned artists depict the many facets of this season, from sparse snow flurry to springlike thaw.
The exhibition at the Arp Museum in Rolandseck railway station and the sumptuous accompanying catalogue offer Germany's first look at this phenomenon. A broad interdisciplinary approach and the bridging of the gap from the climate phenomena of the 19th century to the indicators of present-day climate change deliver a unique experience."
