Sean Scully is known above all for his highly expressive abstract paintings of colorful stripes or rectangles. But it is an entirely new side of this artist that comes to light in a work series being given its first-ever presentation by the Albertina Museum. The series Eleuthera from the years 2015-2017 revolves around a very private subject: these 23 large-format oil paintings show Scully’s eight-year-old son Oisín playing at the beach on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. Watch the master himself talking about this intimate series of paintings.

Wow, the paintings by the Austrian painter #MariaLassnig are so strong and fascinating, aren't they? 😯 And the best thing is we are marking what would have been the 100th birthday of Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) with a comprehensive look back upon her career, thus showing her impressive key works and masterpieces. 🙆 Opening on 5 September. ⁠ .⁠ Maria Lassnig | Self Portrait with rod | 1971 | Maria Lassnig Foundation | (c) Maria Lassnig Foundation⁠ #Albertina #AlbertinaMuseum #MuseumInVienna #WomanArtist

In Giverny Claude Monet had a house and a beautiful garden built for him. In this garden his amazing water-lily paintings were created. Watch the Albertina director Klaus Albrecht Schröder explaining this fantastic painting.

The Artist Alexej von Jawlensky spent the summer months of 1905 in Brittany, where he had rented a house in a small village called Carantec, not far from Morlaix on the Channel coast. 🌾😯 This landscape, which reflects the view of a huge cornfield, must have been created there. But how is it to be explained that this picture on the bottom right is clearly dated to the year 1904? Apparently, the young artist brought some already painted cardboards.⁠ ⁠
