281111: Kunsthistorisches Museum Winter Tales – Depictions of Winter in European Art from Brueghel to Beuys

Kunsthistorisches Museum Winter Tales – Depictions of Winter in European Art from Brueghel to Beuys 18.10.11 – 08.01.12 Snow and Space Who has ever seen a wolf with a halo? You can do so until January 8, 2012 in the large “Winter Tale” exhibition in the Art History Museum (KHM). In Luc-Olivier’s painting The Wolf of Agubbio (1877), the animal is offered a big piece of meat by a butcher while a child is stroking its back. According to a legend, Franz of Assisi was able to tame the wolf that had until then threatened to attack the town. Merson painted the snow on the streets of Agubbio and snow is depicted on many other works. According to a legend, artists and art dealers could charge more for snow paintings – with a frostbite surcharge so to say. And according to another legend, winter is the greatest artist because it covers everything beneath a layer of white colour (snow) within a very short time. Dutch masters to Impressionists offered a wealth of snow-covered landscapes – from Franz von Stuck, Jan Asseljin, Brueghel, to Claude Monet, and each conveyed a different presence of snow. The exhibition, curated by Ronald de Leeuw, presents more than 180 works and is well worth seeing.
