Black & White. Painting from Dürer to Elíasson


Thursday, 22. March - Sunday, 15. July 2018

In spring 2018 Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf, will be showing a comprehensive thematic exhibition dedicated to the centuries-old, yet thus far little studied tradition of black-and-white painting. Starting with mediaeval grisaille glass painting the exhibition explores why artists from many different eras chose to work with the limited colour palette of black and white, as well as demonstrating the fascination which this art still holds today.

The show, which comprises loans from international museums and private collections, presents works by eminent artists, such as Andrea Mantegna, Peter Paul Rubens, Rembrandt van Rijn, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo and Edgar Degas. It also includes works by modern and contemporary artists, such as Josef Albers, Heinz Mack and Gerhard Richter, as well as a walk-in installation by Ólafur Elíasson and Hans op de Beeck.

Exhibition organised by the National Gallery, London in collaboration with Museum Kunstpalast, Düsseldorf

Opening: 21.3.2018, 7 pm
