The Painters of the Sacred Heart

Thu, 15.12.2022
17:00 - 18:00
The virtual tour leads live through the special exhibition "The Painters of the Sacred Heart" and lets us expect some new discoveries
André Bauchant, Camille Bombois, Séraphine Louis, Henri Rousseau and Louis Vivin are four painters and one female painter who had no artistic training and yet managed to establish themselves in the Paris art scene in the early 20th century. Decisive for their success was their contact with the German art dealer Wilhelm Uhde and his exhibition "The Painters of the Sacred Heart" in 1928, in which he brought together the stylistically and motivically fundamentally different artworks of the self-taught artists. In addition to the individual painting techniques, unparalleled pictorial languages and the untouched nature of the theory-heavy art discourse, he appreciated a special humanity and accessibility in their works that he often missed in academically trained artists.
