Dass ich ein Maler war
In honor of the internationally active Bremen painter, who died in June, the Weserburg is showing a selection of works from the collections and loans from private collections. The Weserburg and the Study Center for Artists' Publications will present paintings, drawings, prints, and books by the artist. Included are never-before-seen early works from the 1980s and two equally unknown linocut and monotype series. Consistently striking here is the formal inventiveness, subtle humor, confident use of text and language, and a penchant for spirituality in Schwontkowski's oeuvre.
