Der Holzschnitt im 20. und 21. Jahrhundert
Von Munch bis Baselitz
Katalog zur Ausstellung im Städtisches Kunstmuseum Spendhaus Reutlingen, 2009/2010
For twenty years, the Städtische Kunstmuseum in Reutlingen has focused on the modern woodcut. This specific profile is rooted in history, for, after all, it was two woodcut artists who really stood out among Reutlingen s artists of the past century: Wilhelm Laage, and, in particular, H.A.P. Grieshaber. These two made significant contributions to the process of turning the woodcut into a genuine medium of modern art, thereby greatly expanding the spectrum of its expressive possibilities. This twentieth-anniversary publication presents one hundred highlights from the museum s superior collection, which ranges from the founding fathers of the modern woodcut, such as Munch and Gauguin; to the Expressionists and artists working with the new woodcut, such as Penck and Baselitz; to the most important contemporary artists, such as Jonathan Meese and Gerd and Uwe Tobias.
