Dear friends of art and music,
On September 12, 2020, the vernissage of the artist Wilhelm Frosting took place and I am delighted that despite Corona and good weather yet so (in regards to the circumstances) many visitors found their way to us!
The opening speech was held this time by Johannes Paqué and the gallery assistant Aylin Maggiarosa, who has been working in the Musikstudio since April. Mr. Paqué referred more to the artist’s life, while Ms. Maggiarosa took an art historical approach and commented directly on the works. The impressionistic style of Frosting is unmistakable, which sometimes reminds of Monet, especially in the depiction of nature. At the center of his work is the idea of reproducing the beauty and eternity of nature by using the Impressionist painting style to approach ephemeral motifs, often in the form of flowers and other plants.
Wilhelm Frosting was also present that day with his wife Maike and he used this opportunity to give the audience a more personal impression of his world of thought. We thank Wilhelm Frosting, DongYang Xing and of course the great audience for this late summer highlight!
The introductory concert this time was given by the pianist DongYang Xing (you will be redirected to our Musikstudio page).

Art history lecture by Aylin Maggiarosa
Dear friends of music and art,
We are particularly pleased to be able to introduce you to the painter Wilhelm Frosting in the music studio. In the course of his life, Frosting became known far beyond the borders of Germany for his impressionistic-looking paintings and not infrequently he was already referred to as the German Monet. With both oil and watercolour painting he has devoted himself completely to nature and describes it in his works as an ethereal harmonising blaze of colour. In the meantime, several illustrated books have been published about him, in which it says:
Again and again the painter is drawn to the remote, largely untouched polar countries, to the places of a nature that has not yet been lost, where an all-challenging confrontation is still possible. There he finds his own pictorial cosmos, his painterly diction. Against the changing fashions of our time, he searches for positive images to oppose the frozen life situations.
Under the high sky, among the trees and flowers he wants to paint, because he belongs to them. There he creates his often palm-sized leaves, which he later surrounds himself with in his studio at home, his mother pictures, which become his inspiration and stimulation, awaken memories of what he has seen and dreamed of…
