Marlborough London is pleased to present a curated group show of German Art centring on the post-modernist artist Werner Büttner.

To demonstrate the complex interplay between Werner Büttner’s work and that of his forebears in pre-war Germany, Büttner’s collages and paintings from the 1980s to the present day will be on display alongside an exclusive selection of 20th Century German Masterpieces by artists including Max Beckmann, Lyonel Feininger, Emil Nolde and Kurt Schwittters. For all of these artists, like Büttner, painting constituted a formidable objection to the way things are. The juxtaposition between Büttner and his precursors will be a call to the urgency of art in troubling times.
