Böcklin’s ‘Spring Awakening’ edifies us with its hypnotically dense evocation of mythical figures from ancient times. Opposite him are five important paintings by the leading Italian artist of modernism, Giorgio de Chirico. Four are from a private collection and are only on show at the Kunsthaus for a short period. Also on display from this private collection are works by Filippo de Pisis, Carlo Carrà, Mario Sironi and Giorgio Morandi.
French artist Guillaume Bruère works at great speed, creating multiple works of energetically vigorous draughtsmanship in a short space of time. He prefers to draw on site in museums. (…) Guillaume Bruère has worked from the paintings of Old Masters at locations including the Louvre, the Alte Pinakothek in Munich, the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin and, on many occasions, the Kunsthaus Zürich, where his first solo exhibition in Switzerland takes place. The Kunsthaus is presenting more than 50 works created between 2012 and 2018.
