Aspects of German Art (part two) spans eight decades of German painting and features work by some of the most important and pioneering artists of the twentieth century. The exhibition begins in the 1920s with Max Beckmann, whose work emerges directly from his experiences during the First and Second World Wars, the political upheavals of the 1920s and 1930s, the rise of Nazism, his subsequent exile in Amsterdam and his final emigration to the United States. With a particular focus on painting, this exhibition brings together seminal works that provide an overview of the artistic, socio-economic and political concerns of artists in Germany, during a time period when these artists were reconciling with the trauma of war, finding a national identity, struggling for freedom of expression and constantly pushing the limits of modern and contemporary art.
Includes works by Max Beckmann (1884-1950), Günther Förg (1952-2013), Heinz Mack (b. 1931), Albert Oehlen (b. 1954), Sigmar Polke (1941-2010) , Gerhard Richter (b. 1932), Günther Uecker (b. 1930) .
