“In 1954, exactly 60 years ago, as a passionate promoter of contemporary art Monsignor Otto Maurer founded the Galerie [nächst] St. Stephan in order to offer a platform for the so far unnoticed Austrian avant-garde after 1945. In 2014, to commemorate this fundamental initiative, the Essl Museum will be presenting a synopsis of works by selected artists of the group “St. Stephan”, which was founded two years later around Msgn. Otto Maurer. Works by Wolfgang Hollegha, Josef Mikl and Markus Prachensky are related to each other and complemented by the poetical-abstract works by Hans Staudacher. As part of the core of the Essl Collection, the work of these protagonists of the painterly turn is now acknowledged again and its significance in asserting informal painting in Austria is highlighted.” (text source ESSL Museum)
