 Exhibition Catalogue

Otto Mueller
–published by Magdalena M. Moeller, text by Christiane Remm
Hirmer, 144 pages, 111 mostly colored illustrations, 23 x 28 cm, 32 €

The monograph presents the artistic development of one of the most important German Expressionists on the basis of selected thematic groups like nudes in landscapes, lovers, portraits, pictures of gypsy. The nine lithographs of the "gypsy portfolio" stand out in particular. Since 1924 Otto Mueller visited the Southeast of Europe several times. He was very interested in the ethnic groups of the Sinti and the Roma and portrayed them in their private environment with their families. These lithographs as well as the other works published in this monograph demonstrate how Mueller was intensely engaged in the possibility of an authentic and general depiction of human being and nature. He finally created impressive pictures of greatest harmony and gracefulness.
