'Constable, Delacroix, Friedrich, Goya. A Shock to the Senses' opens at the Albertinum
Luc Tuymans, Belgian artist and curator of the exhibition, gestures in front of his painting 'The Architect' (1997/98) in the major special exhibition 'Constable, Delacroix, Friedrich, Goya. A Shock to the Senses' in the Albertinum, a museum for art of the modern era, in Dresden, Germany. These four exceptional artists had a formative influence on the art of the modern period at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries, and played significant roles in shaping the age of Romanticism in Europe. The exhibition starts on March 16, 2013 and lasts until July 14, 2013.
DRESDEN.- For the conception and preparation of this exhibition Prof. Dr. Ulrich Bischoff, Director of the Galerie Neue Meister, enlisted the support of a renowned co-curator: Luc Tuymans (*1958), one of the most influential contemporary painters. This Belgian artist not only stands out on account of his impartial way of viewing art; for a number of years now he has also taken on the role of curator. John Constable (1776–1837), Eugène Delacroix (1798–1863), Caspar David Friedrich (1774–1840) and Francisco de Goya (1746–1828) were vital in shaping modern art at the threshold of the 18th to the 19th century and they had a formative influence on the age of Romanticism in Europe. Their outstanding paintings continue to serve as sources of inspiration and visual instruction for the generations of artists that have followed in their wake.

In this special exhibition, Luc Tuymans and Prof. Dr. Ulrich Bischoff trace the influence of these four exceptional artists by presenting paintings by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), Adolph Menzel (1815-1905), Édouard Manet (1832-1883), Mark Rothko (1903-1970) and Gerhard Richter (* 1932) alongside masterpieces of the Romantic period. Works by 16 artists are presented in sometimes surprising combinations, thus enabling historical references and contexts spanning some 200 years of art history to be explored from new perspectives.

The idea at the core of the exhibition is to present the museum as both an artistic workshop and a source of inspiration. The curators demonstrate that art does not come into being solely as the result of a creative act in the artist’s studio, but can often be traced back to the artist’s direct engagement with freely chosen models from art history.

Works on loan from international institutions including the Prado (Madrid), the Louvre (Paris), the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the Statens Museum for Kunst (Copenhagen), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Art Institute of Chicago, the Kunstmuseum Basel, the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen in Munich, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, the Hamburger Kunsthalle, and from private collections, will be shown alongside works from the holdings of the Galerie Neue Meister.
