German Art of 20th Century on View in St. Louis


An exhibit examining the international impact of German art in the second half of the 20th century is on view at the Saint Louis Art Museum starting Oct. 17. "German Art Now" features more than 40 works from the museum's collection, including seminal examples of painting, sculpture and photography produced by some of Germany's leading artists. The exhibit provides an opportunity to evaluate the influences and implications of the remarkable art produced in Germany from the early 1960s into the 1990s.

"German Art Now" aims to give insight into artistic practices in Germany and highlight a number of prominent artists whose new ideas have had a significant impact on the art world. Fourteen artists are included in the exhibit, which features new acquisitions of work by Georg Baselitz, Joseph Beuys, Jorg Immendorff, Markus Lupertz, A. R. Penck and Sigmar Polke.

"Over the years, generous benefactors and collectors have established the Saint Louis Art Museum as one of the great centers for the collection and appreciation of modern and contemporary German art. This exhibition celebrates our most recent efforts," said Brent Benjamin, director of the museum.
