On Saturdays, former students of the late professor will be present.
At the opening ceremony on May 28th 2008, the art historian Antje Buchwald will give a talk on the work and importance of the artist. Visitors will have an opportunity to talk to the late artist’s son and to join in a get-together of art lovers in the wonderful atmosphere of the barn.
Almost 30 years after his death, the multifaceted work of Fritz Griebel (1899-1976) will be made accessible to a wider audience. The work of the artist, who was appointed director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg after World War II, covers the world of human figures and objects in portraits, still lifes, nudes, landscape paintings, views of the city of Nuremberg, and the world of forms and signs presented in a rather abstract style.
