An exhibition of work by West German artists is to go on display at the Stadel Museum in Frankfurt from July 22 to October 18.

Titled “The 80s. Figurative Painting in West Germany” it will include paintings by Werner Büttner, Walter Dahn and Jiří Georg Dokoupil.

Director Max Hollein explains: “With this exhibition, the Städel is unearthing a vast treasure chest of paintings that have been viewed through the spectacles of traditional clichés for too long – works that belong to our collective pictorial memory on the one hand, but can well stand to be reassessed and perceived anew in their painterly potency and conceptual complexity on the other.”
