A new current exhibit provides the chance for an intense encounter with a 100 watercolour and pencil paintings by celebrated artists of the past and present.
Drawings have been on display at the Leopold Museum many times in the past few years. The new exhibition, called “Linie & Form” (Line & Shape), is fully dedicated to drawings by various artists of the past centuries. The exhibit not only considers great artists of the past like Alfred Kubin, Egon Schiele and Anton Kolig. It also includes several drawings by contemporary artists.
The focus is not just set on domestic art. Paintings by artists from Switzerland, Germany and other countries are on display as well. Some of the drawings paved the way to famous paintings. Furthermore, “Linie & Form” features sketches by Josef Hoffmann, the great designer of furniture, cutlery and jewellery.
The official exhibition catalogue, which is now available at the Leopold Museum shop, provides a lot of information about the creative processes bending all the magnificent works of art – from nudes to self portraits and the depiction of buildings.
