Just before the Instagramers-Austria* Christmasparty (here) we met at the Albertina museum and enjoyed the MIRO Exhibiton together. Enjoy my pics from that lovely evening. Yes, we were allowed to make as many pictures as we wanted. What fun that was with that special sticker on the jacket on the instawalk.
MIRO: From Earth to Sky
With his imaginative pictorial motifs, Joan Miró is one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. The Albertina is dedicating a solo exhibition to the Catalonian artist containing around 100 paintings, drawings and objects, which strives to emphasise the poetic quality of the famous Surrealist.
And, Baby when it’s cold outside, visit one of Vienna’s amazing museums. There’s a lot to see around New Year in Vienna.
Arnulf Rainer – Retrospective
The Albertina honours Arnulf Rainer on the occasion of his 85th birthday with a comprehensive retrospective. My favorite painting of all is the Crossheart, which is positioned front and center when you enter the lower floor. What a dramatic scenery!
The exhibition encompasses more than 120 works that have been made available by international museums and private lenders. The works range from Rainer’s early works with central forms, over-paintings, and crucifixes, through the self-depictions of the Face Farces and Body Poses and the reworkings into death masks and veiled pictures, up to the most recently created works.
