photoblog image Städel Museum Frankfurt

Städel Museum Frankfurt

 

Modern exhibition annex (2012). You might recognise Andy Warhol's Goethe portrait (1982). "Warhol saw the world’s most famous portrait of "Goethe in der Campagna" by Wilhelm Tischbein when he visited the Städel and – as the quintessence of German culture – it immediately gained entry into the pop artist’s cosmos. For one of Warhol’s tenets was likewise true for the poet-prince of Weimar Classicism: fame in and of itself can be a message in its own right."

this looks like such an interesting place to visit

i know the museum itself; the structure is not the main attraction, but it's the art. however, the actual museum is beautiful in and of itself.

love that top right artwork of the man in the hat
Philine: You are right - the main part of the museum is from the 19th century. Yes, this is Goethe in the Campagna by Andy Warhol. Many thanks, Sherri!

Yes...Fame says as much about society as it does about the individual...
Philine: I don't know ... - many thanks, Ray!
It's a beautiful museum!

Here we can see: beauty is in the hand of the photographer! I love the pictures from the stairs up and down, the sculpture in the middle, but most of all the woman from the back, who is watching Andy Warhols Goethe...
Philine: Yes, I like also the woman watching Andy Warhol's image, I myself could be this woman. I had a copy poster of this Goethe in my classroom as I was teacher in German. Heel bedankt, Salima!

Oh dear.. I'm afraid I don't recognise the portrait sad I like the ambiance of the gallery, though, and the lighting, together with the "tree trunks" for the roof supports but unsure about the exhibits. Is the blue thing in the bottom centre image an exhibit?
Philine: The Goethe portrait is famous, indeed, but you don't have to like it and all the other modern objects in this new part of the museum. I don't remember the blue thing, but I remember the sculpture of Otto Freundlich ("Cosmic Communism"wink in the centre image. Many thanks, Alan, and 'gute Besserung' for you!
This looks like a fine museum building and worth a visit whatever the exhibition Philine
Philine: Big exhibitions are performed here, at the moment, an exhibition about Rubens. Many thanks, Bill! I hope you are well. In our country lots of people are suffering from the flue, and more than hundreds persons have died. In our English lesson we spoke today about the difference of sick and ill. One person said that the word for a gastrich flue should not be mentioned in UK, but I don't believe that.

Looks like a great museum...
Philine: One of our best-known musea -many thanks, Larry!
I'm not into a lot of modern things although it does look to be an interesting building.
Philine: At the moment, there is a big exhibition about Rubens I would like to visit. Many thanks, Brian!
