Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt
22 February–15 May 2011
From February 23 to May 15, 2011, the Schirn presents a comprehensive retrospective dedicated to the German painter Eugen Schönebeck, which will feature almost all of his surviving paintings and his most important drawings. After devoting himself to Tachist drawing in his beginnings, Schönebeck turned to figurative drawing and painting and was one of the first German artists to thematize the traumatic experiences of World War II.
