Deep Space LIVE: Egon Schiele – A closer look at Trude Engel
Thursday, March 15, 2018 / 7-7:45 PM (LENTOS tour to follow)
(Linz, February 26, 2018) Art history garnished with a pinch of mystery awaits audience members at Deep Space LIVE on Thursday, March 15th at 7 PM. Andreas Strohhammer, an art historian and restorer, will present gigapixel images of Egon Schiele’s “Portrait of Trude Engel” and provide fascinating insights into the image’s history, whereby a knife, digital x-rays and puzzling outlines in the area of her forehead play an important role. Immediately following this Deep Space LIVE, visitors can take a close-up look at the original during a guided tour of the “1918 – Klimt Moser Schiele” exhibition at the LENTOS.
Andreas Strohhammer was born in 1965 in Traunstein, Bavaria and studied art history, Christian archeology, and book & library science in Munich and Erlangen. He also completed training as a painting restorer at the Institute for Art Technology and Conservation at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nürnberg. He has been on the staff of Linz’s NORDICO Stadtmuseum since 1994 and has been head restorer for the museums of the City of Linz since 2003. Strohhammer also teaches at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
