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 in a solo presentation for the first time in almost half a century and is the first solo museum exhibition ever. Wiederhold (1904-1962) began painting in 1924 and belonged to the circle of Herwarth Walden’s Berlin gallery “Der Sturm”. During the National Socialist era, he stopped painting and worked as a bookseller. Only a few of Wiederhold’s works have survived; more than 50 paintings and drawings are on display in the cabinet of the New National Gallery.
