Familiar Yet Unknown
Friedrich Einhoff in the Hamburger Kunsthalle Collection

24.02. – 26.05.19

To celebrate a large donation, the Kunsthalle is presenting a selection of distinguished works by the Hamburg artist Friedrich Einhoff (b. 1936) that provides an overview of his rich oeuvre. Einhoff has been one of the foremost figures on Hamburg’s art scene ever since the 1960s, both as a painter and draughtsman and as a seminal teacher of younger artists at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences. His works using a wide variety of techniques always revolve around the human figure with its ambivalent and fragile nature. Einhoff’s figures appear individually or in groups, their alienated faces merging with their surroundings.

The Hamburger Kunsthalle has had the good fortune of being able to make a representative selection of over 50 important works from Einhoff’s studio. Private funding has enabled their acquisition by the Prints and Drawings department, where, together with an existing collection of Einhoff’s early drawings, they now constitute a cohort of more than 70 works from all phases of the artist’s career.
