This autumn, an exhibition in Germany will investigate the dark side of the Romanticist movement and its continuation in Symbolism and Surrealism. Featuring more than 130 paintings, sculptures, graphic works, photographs and films, the exhibition Dark Romanticism: From Goya to Max Ernst will explore the fascination of many artists with the realm of the unfathomable, mysterious and evil. The show will be on view at the Städel Museum (Frankfurt, Germany).
The wide spectrum of artists to be represented in the show encompasses Francisco de Goya, Heinrich Füssli (Henry Fuseli), William Blake, Eugène Delacroix, Caspar David Friedrich, Carl Blechen, Victor Hugo, Arnold Böcklin, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, Félicien Rops, James Ensor, Max Klinger, Franz von Stuck, Edvard Munch, René Magritte, Hans Bellmer, Salvador Dalí and Max Ernst.
The works on view will include many important loans from museums and private collections in various countries, including the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, the Royal Academy in London, the Kunsthalle in Hamburg, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid and the Art Institute of Chicago.
