Hardly affected by the political disruptions taking place, artists in the countries of the former Austro-Hungarian monarchy were busily productive, driven by a desire for a new start.

Redefining the Sublime
John Ruskin was an influential English art critic and social thinker of the Victorian era, who famously argued that the principal concern of the artist is “truth to nature.” For Ruskin, this truth entailed more than merely adept technical representation: artists should, in fact, depict the natural world as mankind experiences it, with all the sensations of both beauty and terror it elicits.

What they had in common was a desire to make visible the laws of nature, the intellect and the supernatural. Their works are being presented side by side for the first time in an exhibition.

Japan in miniature

A Gift of Inrō, Ojime und Netsuke
The private collection of 80 inrō, ojime and netsuke presented here was donated to the Museum for Lacquer Art in 2017. The wealth of objects reproduces plants and animals with symbolic significance, literary subjects, historical scenes and famous landscape scenarios – and thus presents an image of Japan in miniature.

Claude Monet

English Edition
More than any other artist, Claude Monet represents Impressionist painting. This volume illustrates Monet’s career from Realism via Impressionism to a form of painting in which the colours and light gradually become detached from the object. It focuses on the artist’s colour concept, an aspect of his oeuvre which has hitherto not been examined in detail, as well as his passionate study of subjects from his garden in Giverny.

Almost Alive

Hyperrealistic Sculpture in Art
From the 1960s and 1970s onwards, different sculptors became involved with a mode of realism based on the physically lifelike appearance of the human body. By deploying traditional techniques of modelling, casting and painting in order to recreate human figures they follow different approaches towards a contemporary form of figural realism. The sculptures show how the way we see our bodies has been subject to constant change.
