Summer Gallery: Lower Belvedere presents paintings in large formats

In July and August, visitors can admire the monumental paintings at the Summer Show in the Lower Belvedere.

Vienna / Landstrasse. Offered through August 27 Lower Belvedere summer exhibition “huge. drawing in large format”, which displays huge paintings from the collection from the Baroque to the present. Showing big screens takes a lot from artists – a lot of courage, self-confidence, ability and imagination.

General Manager and Values Stella Rowling He maintains that such paintings must be seen in person. Because “they present a challenge to the artists themselves, but also to the audience. Immense scale plays into all that a painting can do: to open up imaginary world spaces, to create suction, to bring the eye and the mind at full speed.”

Big picture effect

The panels are up to ten meters long. The exhibition “Colossal” allows reunions with recently restored works and opens the dialogue between contemporary art and historical art. Visitors can expect romantic landscapes, monochrome fields of color, and fantastic visual worlds. Among others, monumental works by Tina Blau, Herbert Brandl, Günter Damisch, Karl Moll and Hermann Nietzsche will be shown.

Curator Johanna Hofer explains that the images have a huge appeal and impact on visitors just because they are curated. Because business exceeds the size of the human body. The stories behind the paintings are also varied – from the lives of artists to business icons to their creation and reception.

A separate podcast was created in collaboration with “Im Museum”, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s work and details the works.
