Museum Gugging, Maria Gugging, Austria

Nine works by Oswald Tschirtner are part of the exhibition in museum Gugging.

Oswald Tschirtner (1920–2007) create with a minimum of form and colour a maximum of expression. He drew “headfooters” - long human figures whose four limbs were equally long and had no body. The radical simplification distinguishes his works; he visualized objects in a minimalist manner, using only a few lines to represent buildings or landscapes.

Klovicevi Dvori Gallery, Zagreb, Croatia 

One work from the Infeld Collection is part from the exhibition in “Klovicevi dvori”: The Watercolour „In the garden of pigs“ from the year 1933 is an early work from Ivan Generalic, one of the most popular Croatian naïve artists.

The emergence of Zemlja Association of Artists in 1929 radically changed the Croatian art scene between the two wars. Zemlja was a group of academically educated artists (Krsto Hegedusic), peasants (Ivan Generalic) and workers.

Lentos Museum, Linz

Maria Lassnig and Arnulf Rainer rank among Austria’s most successful artists. Lassnig would be 100 this year, Rainer celebrates his 90th birthday. The two first met in Klagenfurt in 1948. The years they spent together proved of seminal importance for both their works.

The exhibition at the Lentos Museum puts on display works that illustrate points the two artists had in common as well as individual forms of expression.

The oeuvre of Philipp Schöpke (1921-1998) is enigmatic and fascinating. With great endurance, he made the human figures transparent and their heart and reproductive organs visible.
The fate of this creative mind is exemplary for all those Art Brut artists whose work went unheeded because of their position on the margins of society.
Three drawings from the Infeld collection become a part from the exhibition in the Museum Gugging.
