New Walk Museum & Art Gallery has a collection of early 20th Century German Expressionist art and related works that is of outstanding aesthetic, cultural and historical importance. It is of unique depth and richness and is the only representative collection of this period of German art in the UK.
Hosting August Sander as part of the ARTIST ROOMS 2012 programme provides an opportunity to continue to introduce 20th Century German artists to the people of Leicester and to examine the context of German modernism. There are very few photographic artists in the permanent collection at New Walk Museum & Art Gallery and the works of August Sander are particularly accessible in this context.
The show will be presented in tandem with the redisplay of the permanent German Expressionist Gallery, offering a unique opportunity to compliment the permanent collection with works from the ARTIST ROOMS collection.
