Oskar Kokoschka (1886–1980) – expressionist, migrant and pacifist whose art was defamed as ‘degenerate’ by the Nazis, made a living in exile executing commissions for celebrated figures in the worlds of literature, architecture and politics, his work is broad enough to encompass everything from landscapes and portraits to mythological figures and metaphors denouncing the horrors of war and defending the power of love and the beauty of nature. A fantastic colourist. Wipkedia describes his life and work in far more detail than there is space here!
The Kunstaus offers a guided tour in English of the Kokoschka exhibition on this date. You are advised to get there early to reserve a ticket. (For your information I notice there is also an English tour on the 12th January.)
