Albertina Museum Presents Max Weiler The Draughtsman

The Albertina Museum presents Max Weiler The Draughtsman an exhibition on view through 16 October 2011.

Max Weiler (1910-2001) was not only a great painter, but also a fascinating and important graphic artist. In more than seventy years of creative activity, he produced an estimated 4000 drawings covering virtually all formats and techniques and forming a collection that is on par with his paintings.

The exhibition will provide insights into Max Weiler‘s entire drawing oeuvre, focusing on the development and variety of the works as well as the significance they had for the artist himself. Parallel to the paintings, the drawings constitute a world of their own. At the same time, however, they are interrelated – a relationship, which will be illuminated with a selection of paintings on display.

The Albertina is one of the most frequented museums of Austria and a highlight for all visitors of Vienna. It is the objective of its tourism department to offer decision-makers in the travel industry information and support so that every visit to the museum will become a complete success.
