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.
