Michael Mathias Prechtl - A Memorial Exhibition

Michael Mathias Prechtl - A Memorial Exhibition

20 years ago Michael Mathias Prechtl, Nuremberg's most famous artist of the 20th century, passed away. Therefore, we are very pleased to invite you to an extraordinary memorial exhibition. We present rare and partly unknown works to commemorate a special artist who created in Nuremberg. One focus of the exhibition is on early works that reveal the inspiration by the painter Pablo Picasso. Most of the exhibited works are hand-painted unique pieces, we are also able to show some rare lithographs from the artist's early period, which were printed in very small editions of sometimes only five to ten copies.
We are looking forward to your coming!

Sale exhibition with paintings from the estate of Helmut Wellschmidt

Wellschmidt creates images of life in which the ubiquitous death - personified in the Sensenmann - reminds us that man knows as the only living being with the knowledge of the past and his inevitably occurring death. There is a tension between the past and the future. The individual fate of the individual and the dying must be his main themes.
