Hans Thoma:
The Pringsheim-Frieze

In Honour of the 200th Birthday Anniversary of Richard Wagner

The Staatsgalerie Stuttgart honours the renowned composer Richard Wagner with a presentation of the Pringsheim-Frieze by Hans Thoma (1839-1924) which has not been displayed for many years. The monumental and recently restored wall paintings with motifs from the mythology of Orpheus and the Golden Age once adorned the music room in the magnificent city villa of the Pringsheim family in Munich. The owner, Alfred Pringsheim, was a highly regarded and very wealthy professor of mathematics and the father-in-law of Thomas Mann. He was a great admirer of Richard Wagner.
