The State Hermitage Museum is delighted to announce the exhibition Gegenlicht. German Art from the George Economou Collection. Exploring the legacy of German Expressionism and New Objectivity on Postwar and Contemporary art, the exhibition installed in the new Contemporary wing brings together major works from the last one hundred years of German art from the collection. We are honoured to appropriate Gegenlicht (counterlight) from the poetry of Paul Celan, who was deeply linked to German history of the Postwar period.
The Greek art collector George Economou has over the last two decades assembled an important collection of Modern and Postwar art.
