Harry Meyer in #MuseumStAfra

"en face" means "from the front" or "opposite". In the context of this exhibition project, Harry Meyer's works of art are not only "opposite" the ecclesiastical art of seventeen centuries in the Diözesanmuseum St. Afra. The artist fully embraced sacred art.  In his works, which are entirely composed of colour, Harry Meyer focuses in a special way on man and nature, the dualism of becoming and transience. The focus here is on capturing the elemental and the elements that are reflected in motifs in the depiction of specific phenomena of nature, such as mountains, rain, seasons, the stars in the night sky or light. Naturalistic reproduction is subordinated to this goal. Man and nature inhabit a spiritual-religious level, which is visibly reflected in all of the artist's works and makes the counterpart of his colour-intensive works of art with historical sacred art so extremely attractive and fruitful.

Welcome to the Diocesan Museum St. Afra

 

History

The precursor of today's St. Afra Museum was founded in 1872 during the tenure of Bishop Pankratius von Dinkel (1858-1894), who can be considered the main initiator of the collection. read more
