Rendezvous

Essl in 1959 in New York. They immediately became a couple and enjoyed their first encounters with contemporary art in the

fascinating metropolis on their dates which took them to the museums and galleries of New York. This was the origin of their

love for art which soon became a passion: The beginning of the Essl CollectionSometimes a date or rendezvous can ignite an exceptional story, as was the case with the initial meeting of Agnes and Karlheinz

works and artists from the Essl Collection. Austrian and international artists meet, sometimes in surprising constellations.Actual romantic rendezvous like the ones Maria Lassnig and Arnulf Rainer">Arnulf Rainer had in the 1950s in Paris come upon imaginary What-if

encounters: Max Weiler meets Cecily Brown, Martha Jungwirth has a date with Asger Jorn, and Kurt Kocherscheidt with Antoni

Tàpies.Far Eastern philosophies with their focus on reduction influenced not only Hans Bischoffshausen, Georges Matthieu and Friedensreich

Hundertwasser, but also the aforementioned Rainer and Lassnig. Encounters with the archaic and the primal bring together such

divergent artists as Kurt Kocherscheidt, Antoni Tàpies, Hermann Nitsch and Eduardo Chillida">Eduardo Chillida.Nature’s creation is the focal point for Max Weiler and Per Kirkeby, the painterly process of transformation connects Weiler

with the much younger artist Cecily Brown. Other meetings celebrate the spontaneous, unbound act of painting valued by the

artists of COBRA.The last room of the exhibition hosts a rendezvous with an unknown outcome with works chosen by friends of the Essl Museum.
