Do you remember this feeling visiting a museum, standing in front of an artwork and discussing intensely? 😍 This photo was captured at the #AlbertinaModern in the exhibition ESSL PHOTOGRAPHY. 📸 The exhibition is still on view and waiting for you to visit - of course after the lockdown! 🤗⁠

Oh we love the mood Paul Signac creates in his paintings. 💙 The color scheme reflects the captured stormy atmosphere. The gray tones that dominate the picture, however, are applied so airily to the unprimed canvas that they do not appear gloomy and threatening, but light and moving. Do you agree?⁠

Good morning Vienna and friends all over the world! ☀️⁠
It's #RegramFriday and we're feeling inspired by @mb_artsss photo of a morning in front of the #AlbertinaMuseum. ⁠
Thank you Markus for this beautiful shot! 🤗⁠

Last night, two great masters met in the #AlbertinaMuseum: ⁠
Rebecca Horner (@einrebhorn) and Pablo Picasso! ✨⁠
There's been art. There's been dance. There's been music.⁠ So much beauty - we are still speechless. Keep your eyes out for this one. The full encounter will be revealed soon!

Ok, Corona, you got the rest of January, but in February we want our visitors back! 👀✊⁠
⁠
The first show that's going to open this year is the photo exhibition FACES. THE POWER OF THE HUMAN VISAGE. It presents powerful portraits from the period of the Weimar Republic. The photographer's aim was no longer to represent an individual’s personality; instead, they conceived of the face as material to be staged according to their own ideas. This photo by Helmar Lerski shows this fact impressively, doesn't it?⁠
⁠
Opening: 12 February (if there are no changes due to Covid-19)⁠

This face looks at us insistently, doesn't it? 👀 No smile and no despair: always only the same, not evasive look into the mirror, concentrated, penetrating, more serious than thoughtful. ⁠
⁠🖤⁠
The self-portraits by Jim Dine, created in rapid succession since 1971, always show the artist frontally and without any expression of emotion. Even as a child, the mirror exerts its own fascination on the artist and serves as an artistic self-reflection.  Fascinating, isn't it? Under normal circumstances, you could visit this amazing drawing at the #AlbertinaMuseum at the exhibition BLACK WHITE & GREY. Due to the #Lockdown you have to wait till 8 February, though. ⁠

The lockdown has been extended again. This means that the #AlbertinaModern and the #AlbertinaMuseum will not be able to welcome you until 8 February. 😭⁠
⁠
But, if you want to visit the exhibition #TheEsslCollection online until then, you can do so with our digital guided tours. Link in bio!⁠

Look at those piercing blue eyes! Kees van Dongen must have been captivated, don't you think? The originally Dutch painter came to Paris at the turn of the century and joined a group of artists which were mocked as LES FAUVES (the wild beasts). Why? Because of their rather simplistic and wild brush strokes and bold use of color. ⁠
⁠
A little tip: live your Sunday like a Fauvist painting - simplified and full of color!⁠

No doubt Janurary is a dark month and since we still can't visit museums to brighten our mood, we bring it to your home. Here is a double boost for your mental wellbeing: art and a very special meditation! 🌞🌱⁠
Join us next Wednesday at 5pm for a live mantra-singing session with @daya_sea in front of Philip Taaffe's Artificial Paradise. ⁠

“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't going away.”, Elvis Presley. ... And the same goes for art. The lockdown forces us to stay closed but you can't shut up the people's love and need for art. This fantastic Magritte is waiting to be looked at again by our visitors.⁠

Thanks for this amazing shot and the quote, @stefania_whatiseeinart. #regramfriday⁠
