Auf Papier / On Paper

Front Cover
This catalogue presents a selection of 365 drawings from the vast collection of the Graphische Sammlung of the museum kunst palast. Among the most outstanding works of the period spanning the 15th to 20th century are the original drawings from the Italian Early Renaissance to High Baroque, including some by Raphael and Gianlorenzo Bernini. The focus of the 19th century collection is on the Nazarenes and members of the Düsseldorf Academy such as Wilhelm von Schadow, to which can be added some superb studies, sketches and watercolours by Caspar David Friedrich, Theodore Géricault and Gustav Klimt. Representing the 20th century are various drawings and prints by members of two important groups, the Brücke and Blauer Reiter, as well as the avant-garde Bauhaus artists. The post-Second World War period is represented by works on paper by Joseph Beuys, Arnulf Rainer and Rosemarie Trockel. English and German text.
