The 4th of October 2019 marks the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death (1606–1669). (…) On display will be (…) for example »Simeon and Hannah in the Temple« (1627) and »Maurits Huygens, Secretary to the Council of State in The Hague« (1632), two masterpieces from Rembrandt’s early period in Leiden and Amsterdam. These will be supplemented by the painting »The Expulsion of Hagar« (1612) by Pieter Lastman, who taught Rembrandt for six months in his workshop circa 1625. Exhibited alongside the three paintings will be a selection of around 60 etchings, including landscapes, portraits and works on religious themes.
The exhibition offers a new and comprehensive look at the early works of these current star painters and asks why these four German artists in particular have become the focus of interest in art around the world.
For the 15th year in a row, gute aussichten 2018/2019 at the House of Photography will present a range of concepts, aesthetics, and media that exemplify the work of young photographers in Germany.
Edith Dekyndt (b. 1960 in Ypres, Belgium) lives and works in Tournai and Berlin. Her works have been shown at venues including the BOZAR and the Wiels in Brussels, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Witte de With in Rotterdam. Dekyndt was awarded the Kunstpreis 2010.
For more than 50 years, Schels has engaged like almost no other photographer of his generation with extreme situations of human life.
The exhibition follows the trajectory from the pioneers of the so-called »Golden Age« of Danish art (Christoffer Wilhelm Eckersberg, Christen Købke, Wilhelm Marstrand), to representatives of the National Romantic style, who primarily explored the beauties of their own country (Johan Thomas Lundbye, Peter Christian Skovgaard, Vilhelm Kyhn), to the Fynboerne, or Funen Painters, who practiced open-air painting on the Danish island of that name (Peter Hansen, Johannes Larsen, Fritz Syberg). Finally, paintings by Theodor Philipsen, a close friend of Paul Gauguin, will illuminate the signature aspects of Danish Impressionism.
