From the Master Class to the Böhme Collection

12 Mai 2023 - 28 September 2024
Current Exhibition

The students of Max Beckmann’s master class (1925-1933) were among the most promising talents of the Frankfurt Art School (also known as the “Städel School”). Nevertheless, they are little known today. Their talent was repeatedly overshadowed throughout the course of the 20th century: By the great name of their teacher, through censorship and defamation from the National Socialists, and due to the destruction of their works during the Second World War. These circumstances affected the cultural visibility of an entire generation.

BEYOND BECKMANN. From the Master Class to the Böhme Collection is the first large-scale exhibition dedicated to twelve of the master class artists in an Austrian art museum. The Böhme Collection holds a total of 101 works from these master class students. From them, around 40 representative artworks trace the lives of these artists, from being students of Max Beckmann to becoming members of the Böhme Collection.

90 years after the dissolution of the master class, these artists are once again reunited, this time under the canon of the Lost Generation.

Exhibited artists: Carla Brill, Inge Hergenhahn-Dinand, Theo Garve, Ottokar Gräbner, Georg Heck, Anna Krüger, Leo Maillet, Friedrich Wilhelm Meyer, Marie-Louise von Motesiczky, Alfred Nungesser, Heinrich Friedrich Steiauf and Karl Tratt.

An accompanying exhibition catalogue will be published. It will be available both at the museum or via our webshop. This publication is only available in German.


This exhibition was supported by the Province of Salzburg.
