Ricco. New Works in the Collection of the Kunstmuseum Bern Opens Today
Ricco, Der Gieu u d’Iffle (u dr Schranz im Helge), 1966, Oil on canvas, 162.0 x 130.0 cm. Kunstmuseum Bern, Permenant Loan Ruedi Wassmer.
BERN.- Kunstmuseum Bern presents today Ricco. New works in the collection of the Kunstmuseum Bern, on view through October 18, 2009. Ricco Wassmer (1915-1972) is no longer an unknown in Berne. Seven years ago an extensive retrospective exhibition at the Kunstmuseum provided the opportunity to become acquainted with the idealising dream worlds of this almost forgotten outsider, whose work can be located beyond the avant-garde.

At that time, the interest of a broad public was roused by the encoded scenes, usually done after photographic model and combining peinture naive, new objectivity and playful surrealism. Since then, the Kunstmuseum Bern has been able to put together a representative work group thanks to the legacy of the collector Emanuel Martin and to further donations, works on permanent loan and acquisitions.

This is the first time Ricco's paintings and works on paper from the museum's own stocks are being shown in a small exhibition. The show is taking place within the framework of the research project related to a catalogue of works which is scheduled for publication in 2010. Curator and work catalogue project leader: Marc-Joachim Wasmer.
