The salon gallery "Die Möwe" presents modern art of the 20th century. The focus lies on artists whose creative work, due to historical events, has largely been unjustly overlooked. In addition to its shows, the gallery arranges salon evenings to acquaint visitors with the lives and works of selected artists. These evenings feature a mix of various genres.
Many painters, graphic artists and sculptors, who are shown in the gallery, were members of avant-garde artists’ associations like the legendary Storm Circle, initiated by Herwarth Walden, the November Group and the Bauhaus. The gallery focuses on the rediscovery of these outstanding and influential artists.
Our exhibition "Fantasies in Shape and Colour" brings together artworks by the painters Erich Franke, Erwin Hahs, Gerhart Hein, Curt Lahs and Heinrich Wildemann and focuses on a special point of view: the interplay of colour, shape and fantasy. Sculptures with elementary charisma by Michael Schoenholtz continue the abstract play of forms in marble and shell limestone.
