Bavaria and Tirol - Berta M.I.Hummel and Paul Flora
April 15th, 2016 to April, 2017

Paul Flora is the ninth artist to enter into dialog with Berta M.I. Hummel here in the Berta Hummel Museum. Berta Hummel became world famous for the porcelain figurines that were modeled from her drawings. The many other facets of the artist’s talents remained undiscovered behind the world of the sweet, innocent children. Her works of art were manifold - many of them done during her university years in Munich, where she was studying art and still signing her works with "Berta Hummel.“ This exhibition will show landscape paintings, street scenes, portraits and brutally honest caricatures - in dialog with Paul Flora’s works which were often done with a fine pen or quill.

Paul Flora was probably the most important Austrian cartoonist and illustrator of the post World War II period. He worked for the newspaper „Die Zeit“ for many years and the „Observer“, the New York Times and the Canberra Times printed his cartoons. His pictures were exhibited in the most important European museums and in New York as well. In 1987 he became a member of the Bavarian Academy of Arts. Born in South Tirol he lived in Innsbruck where he adopted his trademark - the black raven. When the artist died in 2009 he left a life’s work of over 10,000 works. In this exhibition we are proud to show more than 50 pictures from his daughter’s and his son’s collection.
