Collektivausstellung Edvard Munch


Collektivausstellung Edvard Munch

Nov 5 - 12, 1892, Verein Berliner Künstler, the first exhibition in the renovated Rotunda, the main exhibition space, Wilhelmstraße 92/93, Berlin (building of the 'Architekten-Verein zu Berlin').
Edvard Munch's one person exhibition was shut down only seven days after the opening compelled by an extraordinary general members meeting, initiated by Anton von Werner (1843 - 1915), director of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, because the more traditional members of the Verein Berliner Künstler could not agree with the work Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944) was showing.

Already on occasion of the 'Internationale Kunstausstellung Berlin 1891', the fifty years anniversary show, the then art-critic Cornelius Gurlitt (1850 - 1938) could state that the most up-to-date realist Norwegian artists were not included in this important show (Cornelius Gurlitt: Die Internationale Kunstausstellung zu Berlin 1891; Franz Hanfstaengel Kunstverlag, München, 1892, p. 119).

With the exhibition Vereinigung der XI at Galerie Eduard Schulte, Berlin in April 1892 the movement of the 'unofficial' artists (Berliner Secession) became more evident to the public than ever before.
On June 7, 1905, then since 1893 professor at the 'Königlich Sächsische Technische Hochschule', Dresden, four of Cornelius Gurlitt's architecture students founded the famous artist-group Brücke: Fritz Bleyl, Erich Heckel, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, and Karl Schmidt-Rottluff.
