The Städel is delighted with more than 200,000 visitors to "Matisse - Bonnard"

The Städel is delighted with more than 200,000 visitors to 'Matisse - Bonnard'

Director Philipp Demandt's team has every reason to be pleased: with 200,235 visitors, the just-expired special exhibition "Matisse - Bonnard. ‚Long Live Painting!'" one of the most successful of the Städel's last five years, following "Monet and the Birth of Impressionism" (11 March - 28 June 2015 with 432,121 visitors) and "Dürer. Art - Artist - Context" (October 23, 2013 - February 2, 2014 with 258,577 visitors). And the next highlight is also already in the starting blocks.

The exhibition experienced a particularly large rush of visitors in the weeks after Christmas. "With ‚Matisse - Bonnard', the Städel has once again succeeded in bringing very high-calibre loans from the world's most renowned museums to Frankfurt, and in making the public go into raptures with the exhibition idea and the works by Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard. Visitors can now look forward to the Städel's next major undertaking, the exhibition ‚Rubens. Power of Transformation'. The show brings Rubens to Frankfurt for the first time with an extensive and multi-faceted selection of works and opens up a view of Rubens´ creative handling of his models in their entirety," says Städel director Philipp Demandt.

For several days now, the exhibition tour for "Rubens. Power of Transformation" has been set up. "Up to now, Rubens exhibitions have mainly been about the history of the artist's impact - in our presentation, on the other hand, his working method, the creative and creative process, becomes directly comprehensible to visitors," explains Jochen Sander, curator of the exhibition and head of the collection for German, Dutch and Flemish painting before 1800 at the Städel Museum. After the first stop at the show's cooperation partner, the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, several works will be newly integrated into the exhibition in Frankfurt, such as the Blinding of Simson (1636) by Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn (1606-ca. 1669) and the Altar of the Cross (1603-1605) by Adam Elsheimer (1578-1610), both major works from the Städel.

With the extensive accompanying programme, visitors can further trace the genius of the artist: On offer are, among other things, scholarly lectures, regular overview tours, evening tours with the curator, the KUNSTKOLLEG series "Masters of the Baroque", guided tours for children and families, and holiday courses. In studio courses and workshops on topics such as "Sampling as a Creative Strategy" you can then try out Rubens' various innovative techniques for yourself.
