Der weite Blick: die Landschaft der Haager Schule

The far view: landscape of the Hague School Exhibition: 23 October 2008 - 19 January 2009

From the museum website

In collaboration with and showing works on loan from the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam, the Neue Pinakothek is holding an exhibition on the Hague School. The focus of the exhibition is not so much on the school itself – one that was so important to German Realists associated with Max Liebermann – but rather on their view of Dutch landscape, which from approximately 1875 onwards had to give way to increasing urbanisation and industrialisation. With its display of some 90 paintings, watercolours and historical photographs, the cultural-historical perspective of the exhibition traces the invention of a landscape that is still regarded today as typically Dutch. At the same time, the Neue Pinakothek is holding an exhibition entitled Nature as artifice – Natur als Kunstgriff with contemporary photographs of Dutch landscape.
