Alexej Jawlensky and Marianne Werefkin - Soulmates

-
With more than 100 works, witnessing 30 years of common life, the exhibition compares the two Russian artists, highlighting the different phases of their work. It begins with their still realistic paintings in Russia, continues on to those of their expressionist maturity in Munich, and concludes with their late years of exile in Switzerland that testify to Jawlensky’s abstract approach, which he deepens in Wiesbaden, and Werefkin’s increasingly visionary, intense and anecdotal one in Ascona.
