Starting out from Leonardo da Vinci’s Treatise on Painting Helmut Friedel, the curator of the exhibition, is presenting works from Arnulf Rainer’s oeuvre that demonstrate how colours can evoke very special emotional qualities. A nuanced graduation of the expressive characteristics of white, yellow, green, blue, red and black are elicited from the juxtaposition of pictures – created in different years – and the differing ways in which colours are worked.

Wir führen Sie durch die wechselvolle Geschichte des historischen Frauenbades mit Fokus auf die außergewöhnliche Architektur dieses klassizistischen Prachtbaus.

Erleben Sie das denkmalgeschützte Badehaus en détail, finden Sie neue Blickwinkel und erfahren Sie mehr über die Bäderkultur vergangener Jahrhunderte.
