Maria Lassnig is regarded as one of the most important artists of the present day. Over the course of her remarkable career, she created a substantial body of work in the fields of painting and graphics alongside her excursions into (animated) film and sculpture. Lassnig conducted a focused dialogue with her art, which always constituted the pivotal strand of her life. Her artistic work can be regarded as a means of self-empowerment and is also directed against social conventions. Sometimes she reveals herself as a sufferer, a misunderstood and lonely human being. Even though Lassnig’s work only gained well deserved public recognition at a relatively late stage in her life, her works feature in the collections of major museums today. Overall, her oeuvre continues to resonate across broad sections of society and serves as a source of inspiration for artists of all ages.

Maria Lassnig had one great subject: herself. Her art revolves around her own self, it is egocentric. The vast majority of her works are self-portraits, often including works with titles that indicate otherwise. However, these are self-portraits in which physiognomy only plays a minor role. Rather, the visible outside world mostly serves as an envelope for an inner world that makes itself felt in them—even in those so very realistic paintings from her New York years.

The interaction between inside and outside informs Lassnig’s comprehensive oeuvre almost completely.
