Neto — Pfauth — Pizani — Schneider — Seierl portfolios- print series

The exhibition is open to the public from Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at Friedmanngasse 12/5, 1160 Vienna during gallery opening hours or by appointment, provided that an official regulation does not prevent this.

Online catalogue

Five artists, five different printing techniques, five different forms of serial design. What three of the artists have in common is the publication in portfolio form and the fact that they were inspired for their print series by a temporary stay abroad. For Michael Schneider it was Japan, for Daniel Pfauth Sri Lanka and for Wolfgang Seierl Poland. Antonio Neto draws the inspiration for his sometimes exceptionally wide-ranging series from travels in his imagination, which is saturated with memories of both European and non-European myths. And Brazilian Daniel Pizani, at twenty-six the youngest of the five, pays tribute – in both technique and content – to four centuries of etching in Europe, from Rembrandt, Tiepolo and Goya to Ensor and Picasso.

COVID-19 and the relevant political decisions have resulted in considerable restrictions to cultural and exhibition activity this year that could well continue for some time to come, and we also have less exhibition space as a result of our move to new premises, so we are presenting our planned exhibition projects here in scaled-down format. The exhibitions will nevertheless be physically installed in spite of the ever-changing official positions and can be visited in person, providing the regulations allow.

This time the exhibition – perhaps as a reflection of the reduced "neo-Biedermeier" view prevailing at present – is devoted to small-format prints, from the Kleinmeister artists working in Dürer's circle to prints whose titles already give an indication of the format, such as the Small Oriental Heads by Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione or Emil Orlik's Kleine Holzschnitte (small woodcuts). There are also a large number of genres to be seen, which feature small but no less interesting prints, whether they were made for a particular purpose or in connection with a particular occasion: vignettes, remarque proofs, decorated initials, ornamental prints, bookplates, printers' devices, playing cards, invitation cards, leaflets, book illustrations, sketches and the like.

Stand up to COVID-19 and enjoy the charm of five centuries of small-format prints!
