Text from the curator:
The exhibition issues an invitation into the personal and artistic life of Franz Neuhauser the Younger (1763 – 1836), painter and engraver. On display are to be found lithography works, watercolours and drawings made by the artist and now in the Brukenthal National Museum collections. The selected exhibits have a special documentary value and are suggestive for different aspects and stages in Neuhauser’s activity from painter and engraver to teacher and restorer. Thus, the works depict landscapes, portraits, studies, sketches but also reproductions after paintings in the collection of Baron Samuel von Brukenthal.
