“Involved With All Senses” The Graphic Works of Wols – Seen by Will Grohmann

Today, the photographer, painter and graphic artist Wols (1913-1951), whose biographic and artistic beginnings can be found in Dresden, counts among the most important representatives of post-war modernism. Already in 1959, Will Grohmann (1887-1968), one of the most influential German art critics of the 20th century, presented “The Graphic Works of Wols“ in the international art magazine Quadrum. Seen from a distance, but with a fascinating view, he approached this rather unknown part of Wols’ oeuvre.

Parallel to the exhibition In the Network of Modernism. Kirchner, Braque, Kandinsky, Klee ... Richter, Bacon, Altenbourg and their critic Will Grohmann, the Josef-Hegenbarth-Archive presents a selection of prints by Wols from the holdings of the Collection of Prints, Drawings and Photographs. The small-sized prints, which were used for instance as illustrations for books by Jean-Paul Sartre and Franz Kafka, as well as selected texts invite the visitors to experience Grohmann’s knowledgeable enthusiasm for Wols’ prints next to the original art works.
