Esthetic Places – Idyllen in Franken, Thüringen und Sachsen
von Traugott Faber, Johann Adam Klein und Karl August Lebschée

12.11.2023 - 25.02.2024

Views from the 19th century will be presented – manors, mills, summerhouses, medieval churches and castles that were painted in watercolours from 1820 onward by the itinerant artists Traugott Faber, Johann Adam Klein und Karl August Lebschée. The idyllic works will be contrasted with photos from the present day.

Der rote Schirm – Liebe und Heirat bei Carl Spitzweg

Museum Georg Schäfer: 14.07.2024 - 20.10.2024
Kunstpalast Düsseldorf 14.09.23 – 21.01.24 | Hessisches Landesmuseum Darmstadt 22.02. – 02.06.2024

Starting from the red umbrella that keeps appearing as a hitherto neglected, but significant detail in the works of Carl Spitzweg, the exhibition opens up a new perspective on the artist’s life and his concept of love, on his personal image of women and gender roles in the 19th century.

Tod und Teufel – Faszination des Horrors

Museum Georg Schäfer: 17.03.2024 - 16.06.2024
Kunsthaus Apolda Avantgarde 09.09.2024 - 15.12.2024

Never before has an exhibition addressed the phenomenon of the fascination that horror themes in art have had for viewers for a long time. The exhibition will contain a historic section on Dark Romanticism as well as showing the present-day realisations of the theme, especially in the Gothic scene.

Winterworld –
Cooles aus der Sammlung Georg Schäfer

15.12.2024 - 16.02.2025

The winter exhibition curated by the Art Education department at the Museum Georg Schäfer will present winter in its full thematic spectrum and is aimed at all ages.

Eine Bilderlese im Jubiläumsjahr:
Meisterwerke aus der Graphischen Sammlung

Frühjahr 2025

In 2025, the Museum Georg Schäfer in Schweinfurt will celebrate its 25th anniversary. Reason enough to make a large selection of masterpieces from the 5000 works of art in the collection. Around 230 works of art, including many coloured watercolours by famous and unknown German and Austrian artists of the 19th century, will be presented in a large exhibition.

Love Disasters –
Die komplizierte Liebe in der Kunst

Herbst 2025

The focus of the exhibition is on the visualisation of problematical love through art. The starting point is Romanticism, which – contrary to the general assumption – is astonishingly progressive in accepting unconventional love relationships and thus encourages discussion about the problem area of
“love”: a discussion that has not been closed to this day and is constantly challenging art in new ways.
