The installation of Richard Gerstl is well under way! On June 29, the Neue Galerie opens the first museum exhibition of Gerstl's work in the United States, a display of some 55 paintings and works on paper by the artist and his contemporaries. Key paintings by this radical Expressionist reveal Gerstl's extraordinary vision and originality, and demonstrate how the artist's relatively small oeuvre, realized over just a six year period of intense creativity, helped shape the development of Modernism during the early twentieth century. #richardgerstl #neuegalerienewyork ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀
H A P P Y S U M M E R ! ! ! Here, Gustav Klimt's oil landscape Forester's House in Weissenbach II (Garden) from 1914. Klimt stayed in the Forester's house during the summer of 1914, and would paint that location twice. In this version, Klimt focuses on the dense ivy clinging to the exterior walls and the lush flowers that embellish the window beds and path. #summersolstice #summer #gustavklimt

#regram via the @neuegaleriebookstore: Once upon a time, there was a tiny little world. The people of this world, the Krobtz, were less than an inch tall. One day, out of the blue, a giant appeared! What a panic! What could he want? Once the man was asleep, a brave trio stepped into his mouth and began to learn why he had visited them. The Dreaming Giant, a children's book inspired by Wassily Kandinsky by Véronique Massenot and Peggy Nille. #bookfacefriday #kandinsky #bookworm
