VERNISSAGE: SONNTAG, DEN 20. NOVEMBER 2016, 11:00 UHR

The content of the paintings is often only revealed at second glance. Behind the breathtaking sunsets there are sometimes religious hints, as well as reminders of the transience of everything earthly.

The range of landscape depictions in André Evard’s work is enormous; the artistic development of this pioneer of modernism can be traced exemplarily in the works of the exhibition. Among Evard’s early paintings, for example, there are examples that are clearly influenced by Art Nouveau. Dreamy and ornamental images of real landscapes that captivate every viewer with their beauty.
This is followed by impressionist works that, like a snapshot, do not capture the landscape itself, but rather its impression in the eye of the beholder. The almost fleeting manner in which these works are painted reveals the painter’s interest in this completely new and revolutionary concept of painting.
