Besides the œuvre of Frueauf the Elder, which is owned by the Belvedere almost in its entirety, the show will include selected works by artists from Frueauf’s circle, such as by the Master of Großgmain, and, thanks to a generous loan from Klosterneuburg Monastery, the work of Frueauf’s son, Rueland Frueauf the Younger. What will be the first juxtaposition of the father’s output with that of Frueauf the Younger will allow for an in-depth comparison of the two painters. The exhibition will provide impetus with a view to tackling numerous unsolved problems related to the Frueauf circle.
Additional insight will also be supplied by art technological analysis that has been carried out in the course of the restoration of the Salzburg altar panels. Further works of the Frueauf group still await examination. The findings of all of these analyses will be presented in the exhibition and will also be disclosed in a scientific catalogue accompanying the show, which will be the first monographic publication on Rueland Frueauf in more than seventy years.
The exhibition is curated by Björn Blauensteiner.
The exhibition is a cooperation with Stift Klosterneuburg.
Exhibitions in the series Masterpieces in Focus are made possible through the generous support of the Dorotheum.
