Georgiana Houghton - Hilma af Klint - Emma Kunz
Abstract paintings were being produced even before Kandinsky. Completely independently from each other, Georgiana Houghton (1814–1884) in England, Hilma af Klint (1862–1944) in Sweden and Emma Kunz (1892–1963) in Switzerland developed an individual, abstract pictorial language. 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.

King of the Animals

Wilhelm Kuhnert and the Image of Africa
Wilhelm Kuhnert was a pioneer. He was one of the first European artists to travel to the largely unexplored savannahs and jungles of the German colonies in North and East Africa. Under hazardous conditions he documented at close quarters the fascinating animal and plant world and then created in his Berlin studio monumental paintings which were much sought-after on the art market.

Claude Monet

A Floating World
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.

Amerling, Waldmüller and more
This volume illustrates the development of art in Central Europe from 1830–1860 – a period which begins in the age of Biedermeier but extends well beyond it. It shows by means of a selection of representative works how art at this time developed independently and was not restricted to the historical Biedermeier era.

With their pioneering method using dots, the artists of Pointillism no longer directed their gaze only towards the imitation of reality. In their paintings between 1886 and 1930 their dots, colour and light assumed an independent existence to create masterpieces of unprecedented brightness and colour diversity.
