Light in art is an important medium of design that can have different qualities: light can appear as a technical means, as an object of representation, as a mode of design or as a symbol.


In the 19th century, Impressionism marked a new decisive stage of development: the natural light came to the canvas! The Impressionists renounced the studio lighting, left their workshops and painted outdoors. They used only a few colors. Black and earth-brown tones were completely banished. In addition one worked mostly on bright painting grounds. The advantage of the light ground was a greater luminosity of the colors. Thus, the impressionists no longer saw colors as absolute values ​​of a constant color scale, but as reflections dependent on light.


In the exhibition Lichtblicke - Lichtstimmungen the Mark will be interpreted. The show combines valuable loans from private collections with the museum's own holdings. Our interest is directed towards the different pictorial languages ​​of the painters.
