Gesten in der Malerei von Roy Lichtenstein bis Katharina Grosse
Through August 18, 2019
Kunst Museum Winterthur, Switzerland
In 1965 Roy Lichtenstein created his famous Brushstrokes and in doing so highlighted the fundamental elements of the image, such as the appearance of the colors and the pigment, the color fields and their limits, and not least the application of paint in the form of a gesture. This exhibition aims to explore the sheer range of gestures in contemporary painting. Work by Katharina Grosse, Roy Lichtenstein, and David Reed is included.
