Neue Nationalgalerie shows Sascha Wiederhold: Rediscovery of a Forgotten Artist
The exhibition “Sascha Wiederhold. Rediscovery of a Forgotten Artist” shows works by this unknown artist for the first time in nearly half a century. The single-artist exhibition is also the very first museum presentation dedicated to this artist alone. Wiederhold (1904– 1962) began painting in 1924 and belonged to the circle around Herwarth Walden’s Berlin gallery Der Sturm. During the Nazi period, he discontinued his practice and worked as a bookseller; today, only few of Wiederhold’s works survive. The Neue Nationalgalerie is pleased to present more than fifty of Wiederhold’s paintings and drawings in its Kabinett.
