The exhibition is dedicated to outstanding works and groups of works that artists produced in the very last phase of their creativity a nd which\, each in its very own way\, mark the end of an artist’s life’s wo rk.
The show sheds light on the question of a possible conclusion of a n oeuvre – with a sharply focused selection of artistic positions from the late 19th century through to the present. Among others\, the exh ibition showcases works by Édouard Manet\, Henri Matisse and Alexej von Jaw lensky\, not to mention Giorgio de Chirico\, Ad Reinhardt and Martin Kippen berger – presented in poetic constellations\, in which two artists enter in to an exciting\, usually unexpected dialog. Famous late works\, such as Cla ude Monet’s late water lily paintings or Willem de Kooning’s canvases of th e 1980s are just as much central to this concept as are surprising “late wo rks” such as Francis Picabia’s radically reduced “Dot Paintings”\, created in 1949\, or the “Sky and Cloud Paintings” by Georgia O’Keeffe\, which were painted in the 1960s\, when the artist was nearly eighty\, and depict what was for her the new experience of flying. Each of the artists selected pro duced a group of works at the end of his or her creative lives whose qualit y as “final works” offers a particular\, sometimes innovative angle on the artist’s oeuvre.
The exhibits highlight very different aspects and qu estions concerning the imminent end of artistic activity: shifts in outlook \, newly obtained freedom and self-confidence\, reflecting on one’s own wor k\, new directions resulting from physical limitations\, waning or increase d productivity all come into play as do aspects of a disdain for one’s fate \, chance\, and repetition.
