LASSNIG – RAINER
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 exhibition at the Lentos is comprised of roughly 120 works of art. A great number of museums and galleries and private lenders supported the exhibition. Two drawings by Arnulf Rainer – “The crooked man” and “Friends and acquaintances” - belongs to the Infeld collection.
In a modified form, the exhibition will be on view at the Museum Moderner Kunst Kärnten from 14 June to 1 September.
