Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860 – 1890 Academy to Nature. Forms of Landscape Painting in Central Europe 1860 – 1890

This exhibition, organized jointly by the SNG and the Gallery of West Bohemia in Plzeň, is among the first efforts at concentrating on the work by art personalities who moved between the Danube Monarchy and that time’s visual art centres, responding to the attraction of the plein-air landscape. The “paysage intime” (intimate landscape) focused on live reality and domestic and country life, and helped transform the landscape toward modern art.

The exhibition Into the Wild will present works of (mostly) contemporary Slovak artists focusing on the topic of wild nature. "Nature" or "wilderness" exist as constructs of human mind by which we oppose the "civilised", i.e. human-occupied and human-shaped environment.

Arnold Peter Weisz-Kubínčan (1898 - 1944) was born into a Jewish family in the town of Usch, Prussia. From 1913 to 1917 he studied sculpture at the School of Arts and Crafts in Budapest. After the war he continued in his studies in Berlin, most probably at a private academy. In Berlin of the 1920s he could be close to the expressionistic tendencies which suited his artistic nature. Weisz-Kubínčan is a unique figure in terms of our modern painting and drawing but also due to his mysticism.
