Great anniversary show at the Museum Folkwang in Essen

Introduction to artists, collectors and the exhibition idea.

It is exciting to see how two very different collectors from different cultures (Japan and Europe) collected the modern art of the time over 100 years ago. What was important to them, what motivated them? The Japanese Matsukata met the very old Claude Monet in person. Karl Ernst Osthaus from Hagen often visited Auguste Rodin in his studio.

What is there to see in Essen? Paintings by Signac, Monet, Gauguin, van Gogh..., sculptures by Rodin...

Why online in advance? Together we will learn a lot about the origins of the collections and ask ourselves what contributions such a large exhibition can make today to a deeper understanding of cultures? Or also - how do I actually look at a picture "properly"? What is important if you want to discover as much as possible? What does Neo-Impressionism mean? You can ask your questions here. I have a lot of information for you and look forward to exchanging ideas with you.
