Oskar Kokoschka (1886 – 1980) is regarded as one of the most important artists of the 20th century. His enduring legacy for artistic production from the post-war period to the present day is beyond dispute and yet enigmatic: on a continent riven by two world wars, in which realistic art had become discredited, Kokoschka was someone who unashamedly argued for the recognition of figurative art. Throughout his life he believed in the inclusive power of creative expression far removed from state propaganda, and this is reflected in all his oeuvre. Comprising some 200 exhibits, the show is designed as a retrospective and covers every stage of Kokoschka’s artistic career and the full range of his techniques, from oil painting, drawing and watercolour to printmaking.
