Markus Prachensky. A Tribute

“Very early on, the idea came to me that red was the colour of my life,” said Markus Prachensky (1932–2011).

The Austrian artist’s radiant, dynamic, and contrast-rich red brushstrokes virtually dance through his oeuvre. The individual works, at turns wild in their gestures and serene in their composition, are at once energy-charged and meditative.

Markus Prachensky, whose strong anchoring in Austria’s art scene dates back to the 1950s, is among today’s most well-regarded Austrian artists internationally. And with a tribute on what would have been his 85th birthday, the Albertina brings together prominent works from its own collection with hitherto unknown works from Prachensky’s extensive artistic estate.
