In the autumn exhibition of the Museum of the Havelland Painters' Colony, the artist Gerhard Graf (1883-1958) is remembered.
From 1932 he spent many summers with his family in his country house with a studio at the Großer Plessower See in Werder (Havel). The search for unspoilt nature and the examination of the phenomenon "landscape" encompass the most important creative years of Gerhard Graf. The motifs he painted in oil or as gouaches were views of cornfields, pastures and gardens, forest paths, avenues of trees and flowering fruit trees. Panoramic views alternated with nature scenes. The generous view into the distance was closer to Gerhard Graf, the observer was rarely introduced to details of nature.
On display are mainly works of art with Markish motifs from the Gerhard Graf Society and a private collector, which are unique in this combination.
The exhibition was curated by Professor Jelena Jamaikina.
