OUS Munich - Visit to the Exhibition of the Christoph Heilmann Foundation
On Saturday, 14 February we visited the exhibition of the Christoph Heilmann Foundation at Munich's Lenbachhaus. Christoph Heilmann himself gave us a tour through his exhibition, which focusses on European landscape painting from the first half of the 19th century. During this period painters were fascinated by a genuinely sensual approach to nature and a subjective understanding of art. Christoph Heilmann introduced us to this aesthetic mindset both from an intellectual and an experiencial point of view. We were fascinated by Christoph Heilmann's very personal and stimulating insight into the collection of his foundation!
