In 1977, on the premises of the Württembergischer Kunstverein, (Württemberg Society for the Promotion of the Fine Arts), the Staatsgalerie presented a retrospective of the oeuvre of Oskar Schlemmer, comprehensively covering all areas of his work - as a painter, draftsman, graphic artist, sculptor, muralist, stage designer, choreographer and teacher. The exhibition was subsequently shown at the Kunstverein Hamburg (Hamburg Society for the Promotion of the Fine Arts).
The two-volume standard work - Oskar Schlemmer, Monographie und Oeuvrekatalog der Gemälde, Aquarelle, Pastelle und Plastiken, Munich (Prestel-Verlag) - written by Karin von Maur, was published in 1979.
During the intervening years, the archive has been involved to a decisive degree in solo and group exhibitions showing the works of Schlemmer both in Germany and abroad. The archive possesses all of the respective exhibition catalogues.
The substantial inventory of texts, choreographies, documents, photos and publications related to Oskar Schlemmer’s works for ballet and the stage, initially placed at the disposal of the Staatsgalerie archive in the form of a loan, was returned to the artist’s daughter Jaina Schlemmer in 1983, as she oversees the artist’s stage estate herself. Copies of a proportion of this material are available in the archive for study purposes. [ KvM ]
