The gallery’s exhibition focuses on landscape watercolours and landscape drawings. Although Gottfried Salzmann stands in the tradition of the great watercolour masters, he works quite independently and has opened up new scope for the medium, both in pictorial strategy and in the use of colour. The charcoal and ink drawings form an independent part to a certain extent, but at the same time they are intertwined with the watercolour paintings in many ways and relate to them. The rank, the innovative approach of these groups of works was recognised early on by art critics, who found the highest praise for them as early as the beginning of the 1970s. In the course of time, Salzmann developed new fields of activity and also thematised the urban landscape, incorporating photographic and collage techniques, whereby the landscape, also incorporating new techniques, remained a fixed point for his work.

A comprehensive publication will be published by Edition Dittmar, including an essay by Lorand Hegyi and a detailed annotated biography.

Opening : Friday, 21. July 2023, 12 noon until 6pm
