International art works in Bad Breisig, Germany. (Homage to William Turner and the Rhine Romance)

In August 2017: William Turner is a prominent figure of Rhine Romance. Again and again, he visited this landscape and captured it in his pictures. He was a widely-traveled artist, so we would like to dedicate an homage to him with an international art installation in Bad Breisig on the Rhine river. In the exhibition, poems and legends of the romantic Rhine will be integrated with small-scale pictures from all over the world. Multimedia demonstrations flow in with landscape motifs painted by Turner. We plan to project William Turner’s landscape motifs of the Rhine onto a wall. In addition, we will publish several blog posts on this topic in our German online journal and a chapter in our art book.

4th 'Enter into Art' International Installations 2017-18

Prelude exhibition in Bad Breisig

We are pleased to announce our exhibition in August 2017 with the additional PR theme:

'Homage: William Turner and the Rhine Romance'

Deadline: August 15, 2017

Announcement in German

With this exhibition, we are continuing our PR themes, which we had started last year with the Prelude exhibition 'Homage to Guillaume Apollinaire'.

After the exhibition, we will publish a small series of German blog posts on the theme, in addition to a list of the participating artists. We have already reported on a similar subject in the Bernsteinrose blog. Turner not only visited the Rhine, but also its tributaries, such as the Moselle. In addition, we will devote a chapter to the Turner theme in our art and gift book 'Kunstretreat' (exhibition catalog 2018).

The images of the artists will be embedded in the theme and the publications will be linked accordingly. Inspired by Lord Byron's poem “Childe Harold's Pilgrimage,” Turner wandered above all the romantic castle landscapes on the Rhine. He was less interested in the cities. He brought four pencil sketchbooks home. After his first trip on the Rhine, about 50 watercolors were made, which he could sell very well. One of his favorite motifs was the Drachenfels in K√∂nigswinter, whereby the emphasis was on the atmospheric mood. The German poet Heinrich Heine and the famous rock “Loreley” also play an important role in the Rhine Romance.

Please also make note of our Prelude exhibition in autumn 2017 with the theme “Homage: Ludwig van Beethoven and the poems of Johann Wolfgang Goethe.” You can find more information in our FAQ!

We look forward to your participation in our Prelude exhibitions. With your registration, you can participate in up to 4-5 exhibitions.

Our PR themes serve as a cultural part of the exhibition to promote small-format images. Your pictures do not have to be related to the event theme. You can choose your subject freely. The event theme is only relevant for materials edited by us.
