After stops in Aschaffenburg and Erfurt, the Kunsthalle Rostock is showing the exhibition "Wolfgang Mattheuer und Markus Matthias Krüger. Unter blauen Himmeln". The show focuses on the landscape painting of the two artists.
Committed to the Romantic tradition as much as to critical realism, Mattheuer (1927 - 2004) created an extensive body of work in landscape painting. He is one of the "fathers" of the Leipzig School. In the exhibition, he meets the atmospheric landscapes of the Leipzig painter Markus Matthias Krüger (*1981), whose magical realism questions the ideal landscape image.
