"I take my work as an artist as general as possible: I want to paint a portrait but can also design a piece of furniture; I draw cartoons but also wallpapers, posters; I design stained glass windows but also occasionally a screen. " - Hans Christiansen in 1898. Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt, Germany rediscovers the world of artist Hans Christiansen (1866-1945). He was one of the most prominent representatives of Art Nouveau. His oeuvre is the result of a variety of sources of inspiration, ranging from Arts and Crafts of the late 19th century through the stained glass windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Japanese woodblock prints up to Toulouse-Lautrec´s poster art and the paintings of the Nabis. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the artist and pay tribute to the pioneer of Jugendstil in his hometown, the Hans Christiansen Retrospective exhibition is on view at the Institute Mathildenhoehe Darmstadt until February 1st, 2015.
