"German Art Now"
Exhibition in St. Louis

    TWIG - Through years of generous support from private collectors, the St. Louis Art Museum, in particular its Schoenberg Exhibition Galleries, have made the mid-west city home to more contemporary German art than some galleries in Germany can claim An exhibition opening at the museum this week showcases one of the world’s premier collections of German art from the last half-century.

"German Art Now" offers a singular look at the influence of German artists in the past fifty years, from staple works from the gallery’s own collection to new acquisitions by painter Georg Baselitz and works on loan by Sigmar Polke.

The exhibition celebrates the museum’s recent acquisition efforts, which have enhanced its already rich collection of contemporary German art.

In addition to pieces in the exhibition by Gerhard Richter, Joseph Beuys, Joerg Immendorff, and Hilla Becher, the museum is home to one of the world’s foremost collections of Max Beckmann paintings. Beckmann’s expressionistic forays into human loneliness and despair through landscapes, still lives, and haunting self portraits are highlights of the 40 paintings and 58 drawings on display at the gallery.

Beckmann dealt with allegorical subjects, often painting carnival or circus scenes starring the people that he met from the 1920s until his death. He spent the last three years of his life teaching at the Brooklyn Museum School in New York City.

The exhibit will be on display through January 11, 2004, and will then move to Frankfurt, Germany, in autumn, 2004.
