Krems Landesgalerie Niederösterreich Landesgalerie Niederösterreich Ausstellung

The Lower Austrian artist Herwig Zens (1943–2019) exerted a strong influence on the Austrian cultural landscape. As a professor at Vienna’s Academy of Fine Arts, he was responsible for the training of many generations of educators. In addition to his teaching activities, Zens created an extensive and internationally recognized artistic oeuvre for which he was awarded numerous prizes.

This exhibition commemorates the eightieth anniversary of the birth of the artist, who died in 2019, and with paintings, drawings, and printed graphics presents an entire cosmos of topics that Zens explored intensively in his decades-long work, among them his “Radiertes Tagebuch”, the Spanish painter Francisco de Goya (1746–1828), death, and the composer Franz Schubert.

Curator: Nikolaus Kratzer

Tip
On the occasion of this anniversary, the Forum Frohner is dedicating a show to Zens as well, in which his etchings on the topic of death and vanitas are juxtaposed with works by Adolf Frohner.
