Exhibition on view February 7 - April 12, 2020
Opening reception: Friday, February 14, 6-8pm
Vito Schnabel Gallery is pleased to present its first solo exhibition with the influential and internationally celebrated German artist Markus Lüpertz. In the selection of eleven paintings on view from the 1990s to the present, the artist deftly engages with themes rooted in the history of painting and the classical tradition. Rich with references to mythology, history, and legends, and replete with art historical allusions, Lüpertz's works ambush expectations through his unconventional interpretations of familiar themes, and achieve drama through the exquisite tension he creates between abstraction and figuration on the surface of the canvas. The exhibition in St. Moritz is organized with the cooperation of Michael Werner Gallery.
