The studio exhibition “Wilhelm Lehmbruck. A Life” traces the life and early work of the famous Duisburg artist by way of unique documents, recordings and artworks. The studio exhibition was conceived on the occasion of the jubilee show “Beauty. Lehmbruck & Rodin – Masters of Modernism” held around the 100th anniversary of the sculptor’s death, which was on view at the Lehmbruck Museum until August 2019.

With seldom shown works from his early career, “Wilhelm Lehmbruck. A Life” illuminates a facet of the artist that has been little known to the public thus far and that shows the radicalism with which the artist’s ideal of beauty changed before his early death in the year 1919.
