New York City

Thursday, November 14 / 8:15am to 5pm

Neue Galerie
Guests receive a guided tour of Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, a major overview of the great German artist’s oeuvre. The presentation spans from 1907 to 1937, presenting several distinct phases associated with the primary cities where he lived and worked: Dresden, Berlin, and Davos. This exhibition is unprecedented in its focus on Kirchner’s revolutionary style, which evolved in relation to his subjects and changing circumstances. Arguably the most outstanding German artist of the early twentieth century, Kirchner occupies a special position in the Neue Galerie collection, and this exhibition pays tribute to his inventive genius. The presentation unites paintings, decorative works, drawings, and prints, and comprises loans from public and private collections worldwide.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The history of printmaking has been punctuated by moments of great invention that have completely changed the course of the medium. The Renaissance of Etching traces the first seventy years of the etched print (circa 1490 to circa 1560), from its emergence in the workshop of the German printmaker and armor decorator Daniel Hopfer to the years when a range of artists from Germany, Flanders, Italy, and France began experimenting with etching. Approximately 125 etchings, produced by both renowned and lesser-known artists, are displayed alongside a number of drawings, printing plates, illustrated books, and armor. Guests view this exhibition at their leisure. Christine Giviskos, Curator of Prints, Drawings and European Art provides additional insight on this trip.

The cost includes transportation, admission, tours, and lunch at Cafe Sabarsky.
