Beckmann. Exile Figures
- Museo Nacional Thyssen-Bornemisza
For its temporary exhibition Beckmann. Exile Figures, the museum has released an interactive publication that explores the work of one of the most celebrated German artists of the 20th century. Page after page tells of a personal and independent painting, of a realist nature but with symbolic resonance, emerging as a vigorous testament to the society of his times.
I think the reason why I love to paint is that it forces one to be objective. There’s nothing I dislike more than sentimentalism
