Elsner at the Lenbachhaus in Munich

Works by Sławomir Elsner are being shown at the Len­bach­haus in Munich among pain­tings from the museum’s col­lec­tion of works by the artists from Der Blaue Reiter group. Elsner’s drawings offer his own inter­pretation of two por­traits of the legen­dary Rus­sian dancer and choreographer Alexan­der Sakharoff, pain­ted by Alexej von Jaw­len­sky and Marianne von Weref­kin. The works created with crayons on paper cor­respond with the water­colors and the entire arran­gement of the room designed by the artist. The show, which runs until February 2021, is the latest museum presen­tation of works by Elsner in which he con­ducts a dialogue with the history of art.
