Sculpture through the lens of the camera. Alfred Tritschler’s photos of the Schnütgen collection

Museum Schnütgen. November 9, 09.11.2019 to February 16, 16.02.2020

This exhibition follows the view of the photographer Alfred Tritschler (1905–1970) on the collection. In 1948 Tritschler photographed more than 100 of the museum’s artworks. He staged the sculptures with his Leica camera in vivid “portraits” and found an individual artistic expression for these motifs. A selection of some 90 original prints, together with around 30 sculptures, will be shown for the first time.
