German Art Posters

January 21 – October 5, 2019
Hedge Hall and Roger Williams Hall Satellite Galleries

 

An exhibition of German Art Posters will be presented in the Museum’s satellite galleries in Hedge and Roger Williams Halls on the Bates College campus. The Posters are selections from a gift of graphic works donated to the Museum of Art by Eric and Marilyn Hirschler.

The posters are from the mid 1960’s and are primarily museum and gallery art exhibition posters. The works feature important and lesser-known post-war and contemporary German artists and are from a variety of galleries and museums. Exhibitions of the Expressionist and New Objectivity (Neue Sachlichkeit) movements by artists such as Käthe Kollwitz, Otto Dix, and George Groz are among the featured works and the exhibition posters come from museums such as the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and the Akademe der Künste, as well as influential galleries in Berlin, Munich, and elsewhere.
