The inaugural exhibition in the new East Building of the Saint Louis Art Museum, Postwar German Art in the Collection
, features many of the museum's most stunning and moving pieces. Betty
, Gerhard Richter's soft-focus painting of a backward-looking girl wearing an exquisitely beautiful jacket, is a crowd favorite and is now proudly on display in full view rather than tucked in a corner. Anselm Kiefer's visceral large-scale sculptural painting, Burning Rods
, and the mirthful but melancholy Why Can't I Stop Smoking?
by Sigmar Polke also now have spaces that suits their presence. Postwar German Art
remains on display Tuesday through Sunday through Sunday, January 26, 2014. Call 314-721-0072 or visit www.slam.org
for more information.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: June 29. Continues through Jan. 26, 2013
