This year’s summer exhibition in the Museum Zinkenbacher Malerkolonie highlights the art of Professor Alfred Gerstenbrand (1881 – 1977) and the works he created during the course his many journeys.
His travels just after the turn of the century took him through many European countries, the Orient, and other continents. While travelling he worked constantly on sketches, water colours and small-format oil paintings. His caricatures in particular show a special sensitivity and empathy, observational skill and humour.
Gerstenbrand was also an author and skilled illustrator of numerous books.
Central to this exhibition are the impressions he brought with him on paper and canvas.  The works on display also provide a documentation of the manner of travel in the 1900 to 1940 period.
2021 marks Gerstenbrand’s 140th anniversary.
A comprehensive catalogue of the exhibition provides a deeper insight into the art on display.
