This summer’s big Louisiana exhibition will be the first comprehensive presentation in Scandinavia of Franz Gertsch (1930-2022). In the second half of the 20th century, the Swiss artist shaped a new, special concept of realism and rose to international fame for his photorealistic paintings and woodcuts.

From the 1980s, Gertsch began transforming his photographic sources into woodcuts. Their monumental size alone invests them with the most extraordinary presence. The selected works in the exhibition will provide an overview of the important phases and recurring themes in Gertsch’s oeuvre.

The exhibition features the large-format works of the 1970s, which led to Gertsch’s international breakthrough at documenta in 1972; his iconic portraits of women from the 1980s; and the monumental sections of nature and landscapes from the past two decades. The paintings will be accompanied and complemented by a selection of the artist’s large-scale woodcuts.
