Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller

From Jun 9, 2009 until Oct 11, 2009

Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller (1793 - 1865) was one of the most important Austrian painters of the Biedermeier period. Whether it was the conquest of the landscape and thus the convincing rendering of closeness or distance, the accurate characterisation of the human face, the detailed and refined description of textures, or the depiction of rural everyday life: his works - brilliant, explanatory, moralising, and socially critical - influenced a whole generation of artists. Being an advocate of natural observation and plein air painting, as well as a critic of academic painting, Waldmüller was far ahead of his time.
 
The Belvedere accommodates the Waldmüller Archive and owns the most comprehensive collections of his works worldwide. In this retrospective, starting in spring 2009 and comprising some 120 works, masterpieces from the Belvedere’s holdings will be complemented by loans from national and international collections. Several paintings that were thought to be lost will be presented to the public for the first time.

The exhibition is being organised in cooperation with the Musée du Louvre, Paris and is presented there with a selection of around 40 works until 18 May 2009.
