Retrospective of the drawings and watercolours
Maria Lassnig’s “body-awareness” works centre on rendering bodily sensations visible in a way that is at once humorous and serious, yearning and merciless. Lassnig stands alongside Louise Bourgeois, Joan Mitchell, and Agnes Martin as one of the most important women artists of the 20th century. It was early on that she made her own body the central focus of her art. Three years after her death, the Albertina is honouring Maria Lassnig with a retrospective of her drawn work, bringing together around 100 of the artist’s most beautiful hand drawings. Find out more about the Maria Lassnig exhibition from the Albertina’s website.
