Dear art lover,

Let's start the new year with a bit of art. I would like to invite you to join this special exhibition in Wiesbaden, the Retrospective of Ernst Wilhelm Nay.

"As an artist repeatedly featured at the early editions of documenta, the German painter Ernst Wilhelm Nay Protected content became internationally famous after WWII. His striking visual vernacular formed a bridge between the figurative expressionism of prewar Modernism and the gestural abstraction of the postwar period.

It is the first time this important artist has ever featured in a solo exhibition at Museum Wiesbaden and, befitting the occasion, it will be a comprehensive retrospective of Nay’s broad oeuvre. On view are not only the famous Lofoten paintings, as well as the Disc and Eye Pictures, but also the Hecate and Fugal Pictures, which were created in the Rhine-Main region. The retrospective will make these creative periods — usually perceived as self-contained and homogenous — tangible as an organic, interlocking body of work spanning many decades."

Look forward to seeing you soon.
