“Wolfgang Mattheuer und Markus Matthias Krüger. Unter blauen Himmeln”


From 26.3. to 10.7.2022 the Kunsthalle Jesuitenkirche – Museen der Stadt Aschaffenburg is showing the exhibition “Wolfgang Mattheuer und Markus Matthias Krüger. Unter blauen Himmeln.” Among the so-called “fathers of the Leipzig School”, Mattheuer represented the role of the critic, as a keen observer of a landscape that has been changing due to urban sprawl, particularly since the 1970s. Markus Matthias Krüger also stages a mostly deceptive idyll in the manner of the old masters with an almost brilliant, “quiet” pictorial aesthetic. The exhibition is a contribution to the Aschaffenburg and at the same time Lower Franconian culture days on the subject of [art] [culture] [climate] from 30.6. until 10.7.2022. Wolfgang Mattheuer’s painting “Sonnenstrasse II” from 1990 was loaned to this exhibition from the Kunstsammlung der Berliner Volksbank.
