The exhibition follows projects that have previously been put on show in the Neue Pinakothek’s study gallery. Using information recorded in an index held in the museum storerooms, the exhibition sets about arranging these projects into a thematic selection. ‚C is for Country…’ shows 19th century artists (re)discovering the familiar and unfamiliar both at home and abroad, and the resulting depictions captured in their paintings. Featuring between 40 and 50 paintings, the collection allows visitors to observe how quickly initial curiosity can become bogged down in clichés.
