Frieder Burda Collection


Gerhard Richter, 3.5.88, 1988, Collection Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden © Gerhard Richter 2014

Exhibition, Deutsche Bank KunstHalle, Berlin, Germany, until 8 March
Frieder Burda was not fascinated by cold, analytical paintings, but by works that reflect a torn, rebellious human image and that penetrate deep into the psyche and collective history. To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden, the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle in Berlin is presenting a selection of 113 works from the Collection. Featured in the exhibition are drawings, watercolours, and gouaches by Georg Baselitz, Willem de Kooning, Sigmar Polke, Arnulf Rainer, Neo Rauch, and Gerhard Richter, thus lending much insight into a hitherto unknown side of one of Germany’s most important private collections, while exposing the creative thought of these great 20th-century painters.
