The Cockatoo has been in my collection for many years. The “Probedruck, Papagei” like the macaw printed in thick layers of paint showed up recently (Spring 2022) and was acquired for the collection. Birds do not like be single.
Gerd Schniewind was a little known Hamburg printmaker known from only a few coloured prints. His best known print is a view of medieval iconic Steckelhörnfleet in the heart of the ancient city of Hamburg. Once rivaling with Amsterdam and Venice for its many canals and beauty it was all destroyed by allied bombing.
Dear print lover, passing-by visitor and reader:
While this new gallery-museum site is under construction (being build-up, stocked and arranged) priority must be given to first add all the represented artists in the index with works from the collection and if possible with the examples from the archives.
During construction the site is open to visitors, questions, feedback and suggestions.
Read more about the artists, their lives, families and careers in the new and extensive Artist Lexicon: “DAS HAUS DER FRAU, the short biographies” accompanying this exhibition.
Hundreds of new artist biographies, a private publication in 2 Volumes written conveniently in English.
