Eduard Bargheer in Hamburg
28 September 2008 – 25 January 2009

Kunst in Hamburg



To mark the publication of Volker Plagemann’s new biography of Eduard Bargheer in the series “Hamburger Köpfe”, the Hamburger Kunsthalle is presenting the exhibition “Eduard Bargheer in Hamburg”. Tracing the painter’s artistic and intellectual links to the Hanseatic city from the early 1920s until his death in 1979, it includes not only the sweeping Elbe landscapes from the early 1930s with which Bargheer decisively influenced the Hamburg Secessionist style, but also views of Blankenese from his late work, showing the progression from a soft, fluid painting styleto the abstract, grid-like compositions thatbrought him international success in the 1950s. In addition, a number of portraits on show document the painter and printmaker’s relationships with notable Hamburg figures such as Erwin Panowsky and Gustav Gründgens.

Curator of the exhibition: Dr. Ulrich Luckhardt
