'A World Caught with the Eye and Held by the Pencil': Drawings by Adolph Menzel

Le Claire Kunst
Magdalenenstraße 50

Stephen Ongpin Fine Art, in collaboration with Le Claire Kunst, is delighted to present an exhibition devoted to works by one of the greatest draughtsmen of the 19th century; Adolph Menzel (1815-1905). This exhibition will present a unique opportunity to see the broad range of this remarkable draughtsman’s skill, including works from over fifty years of the artist’s long career. The exhibition includes thirty-seven drawings, many of which are studies for paintings or finished gouaches, and most works come from private collections. The range of drawings includes figure studies, landscapes, portraits and genre subjects, and highlights Menzel’s talent across every medium of draughtsmanship including chalk, watercolour, pastel, gouache and pen.
