While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.
Drawing on nearly 50 recently donated works by Walter Gramatté, this display at the Hamburger Kunsthalle (12 March–24 May) looks at the links between the Berlin-born painter, whose style moved freely between Symbolism, Expressionism and Surrealism, and the art scene in Hamburg, a city he visited frequently in the 1920s. Among the highlights of the exhibition are a number of Gramatté’s penetrating self-portraits, and the melancholy monochrome prints he completed in the wake of the First World War. Find out more from the Hamburger Kunsthalle’s website.
