Summerdays on Ischia - The painters Ulrich Neujahr, Eduard Bargheer and Hermann Poll

Our new exhibition „Summerdays on Ischia – The painters Ulrich Neujahr, Eduard Bargheer and Hermann Poll“ takes us to the summers on the italian island, which has magically attracted the three painters and many other artists since the 1930s but especially from 1950.  
Fascinated by the wild, untouched beauty of nature, the intense colors and the small fishing villages and their inhabitants, the painters not only found their personal arcadia on the island - Ischia also became an endless source of inspiration for them. The oil paintings with their intense, warm colors, the watercolors of enchanting lightness and the woodcuts with typical everyday scenes that Ulrich Neujahr (1898-1977), Eduard Bargheer (1901-1979) and Hermann Poll (1902-1990) created on Ischia reflect our image of sun-drenched southern landscapes and mediterranean coasts to this day.
