MASTER SCULPTORS AROUND WOTRUBA

albrecht — avramidis — hrdlicka — pillhofer — reiter — urteil

Fritz Wotru­ba is one of the most influ­en­tial Aus­tri­an sculp­tors of the 20thcentury. In our fes­ti­val exhi­bi­tion we focus on the rep­re­sen­ta­tives and the devel­op­ment from the artists influ­enced by Wotru­ba to their unmis­tak­able style. While the ear­ly sculp­tures show the typ­i­cal squat cubist, angu­lar forms, the indi­vid­ual devel­op­ment of the sculp­tors can be seen in the lat­er works.
Among the many great names that Wotruba’s school pro­duced, sculp­tures and sculp­tures by Her­bert Albrecht, Joan­nis Avramidis, Alfred Hrdlic­ka, Josef Pill­hofer, Erwin Reit­er and Andreas Urteil will be shown along­side works by Fritz Wotru­ba. The sculp­tur­al work of each is com­ple­ment­ed by draw­ings and sketches.
