Philipp Otto Runge - Silhouettes
Philipp Otto Runge (1777-1810) was driven by the vision of fusing visual art with poetry, music and architecture. Mainly, he expressed his universal ideas through fragile paintings, drawings and silhouettes, which is also the reason why the work of the young genius is rarely on show. This show presents a selection of his colour panel silhouettes.
