Richard Winther


4 March - 23 May 2010
The Danish painter, sculptor and photographer Richard Winther (1926-2007) was
one of the most significant artists of his generation.

Moreover, in addition to having taught the painter Per Kirkeby, he co-founded two of the most seminal artists’ groups of the twentieth century.
Winther first began to photograph as a young boy, and in the 1950s he visited Man
Ray in Paris. In the 1960s, he developed his own distinctive photographic style, based
on technically complicated, self-made cameras which, among other features, could
take 360-degree panoramas. Later, his photography took on an autobiographical
slant when he began staging himself in the roles of various alter egos, such as, for
instance, the hermit Hieronymus, who is tempted by women.

The exhibition was accompanied by an illustrated catalogue which is available through the museum shop.
