In the Trenches

Kunstmuseum Schloss Derneburg is pleased to announce an exhibition of works on paper by German artist, poet, and musician Markus Lüpertz, one of the most important and influential artists to emerge from post-war Germany. Featuring approximately 40 early works that focus on the artist’s output between 1964-1976, the show traces the development of Lüpertz’s idiosyncratic iconography. Known primarily for his large-scale paintings and sculptures, Lüpertz has made thousands of preparatory drawings throughout his six-decade career. This survey, which includes celebrated subjects like Donald Duck, railway tracks, tree trunks, and soldiers, allows an intimate overview of some of Lüpertz’s most important themes, and features works that have not been publicly exhibited in more than forty years.
