This is the first comprehensive survey of twenty-first century art movement, at the Leipzig School. Founded in 1764, the Leipzig Academy is one of the oldest art schools in Germany. It is highly regarded for its tradition of figure painting but, before German reunification, was subject to the state's 'social-realist' propaganda. Now a group of young students, including: Christoph Ruckhaberle; Thilo Baumgartel; and David Schnell, have breathed new life into an old tradition with enigmatic narratives, Surrealist overtones, and discordant palettes. Many of their paintings reflect a world weariness that, reflects the still uneasy political situation while, others suggest an ennui-ridden zeitgeist that belies the otherwise optimistic messages issuing from the West. Several leading art critics and historians interpret, this exciting movement that has swept onto the international art scene, where works have been successfully sold-with paintings by Neo Rauch sometimes reaching sensational prices. The thoughtful and sometimes witty essays, are illustrated with reproductions from the movement's most important figures, with works that can be seen in many of the world's most important museums. The result is a rich palette of informed opinion that will keep people talking about this artistic movement.
