Oskar Reinhart Collection 'Am Römerholz'

Hidden treasures of the Collection

For a short time the spotlight will be on individual artworks that are otherwise seldom shown.

Matthias Grünewald, Half-figure of a Woman Lamenting, around 1512-15

The few surviving drawings by Matthias Grünewald attest to his exceptional mastery of the medium and affirm his position as one of the most outstanding artists of the 16th century. Grünewald used his technically sophisticated charcoal drawings to thoroughly explore the potential posture and positioning of his figures, the use of light and facial expression, before later including these in the overall composition of an altar panel. The painting of the young woman wringing her hands from the ʻAm Römerholzʼ Collection is one of his most renowned studies. The piece even served as the basis for two figures in the unique Crucifixion panel of the Isenheim Altarpiece.

Exhibition duration: November 30, 2017 - February 18, 2018
