With his sensitive and time-transcending compositions, Romanian artist Victor Man is one of the most sought-after painters of the present—and one of the most extraordinary. In the midst of the Old Masters Collection, the Städel Museum is presenting an exhibition of works from the past ten years dedicated to his artistic focus: portraits.

About the Exhibition

At the Städel Museum, a fascinating dialogue between history and the present emerges. Subtle influences of the pre-Renaissance, dense with metaphors, emerge in his melancholic imagery. In deep dark green, blue, and black, the artist creates portraits as intimate as they are enigmatic. Stylistically complex and difficult to categorize: Man’s work reveals numerous art historical references while at the same time representing a unique position in contemporary painting.
