From perfection to Pop Art

The limitless artistic possibilities of creating portraits can now be discovered at an exhibit in Graz.

The city’s Neue Galerie presents “Wer bist du? Portraits aus 200 Jahren”, a collection of paintings and sculptures displaying the vast variety of styles and techniques – from the mannerism of the Habsburg era to 21st century expressionism, photo projects and video installations.

Located on two floors, the comprehensive exhibition curated by Gudrun Danzer and Günther Holler-Schuster features paintings by Friedrich Amerling and his contemporaries, sculptures depicting writer Peter Rosegger, a set of paintings by Wilhelm Thöny and 20th century masterpieces by Andy Warhol, Maria Lassnig and Alex Katz.
