Oskar Kokosch­ka (1886–1980) is, along with Fran­cis Pica­bia and Pablo Picas­so, one of a genera­ti­on of artists who retai­ned their alle­gi­an­ce to figu­ra­ti­ve pain­ting after the Second World War, even as abs­tract art was con­so­li­da­ting its pre­do­mi­nan­ce. It is also thanks to them that non-rep­re­sen­ta­tio­nal pain­ting and figu­ra­ti­ve art can now be prac­tised side by side wit­hout par­ti­san feu­ding. Artists of the pre­sent day ack­now­ledge their debt to Kokosch­ka in par­ti­cu­lar.

The retro­s­pec­tive traces the motifs and moti­va­tions of a pain­ter who felt at home in no fewer than five coun­tries. It brings tog­e­ther 100 pain­tings and an equal num­ber of works on paper, pho­to­graphs and let­ters from all pha­ses of his care­er. Two impres­si­ve tri­ptychs, each around eight metres wide and two metres high — “The Pro­me­theus Tri­ptych” (1950, Cour­tauld Gal­le­ry, Lon­don) and “Ther­mo­py­lae” (1954, Uni­ver­si­ty of Ham­burg) — are the high point of Kokoschka’s matu­re oeu­vre, and of this retro­s­pec­tive. The two works have only been shown tog­e­ther once befo­re, at the Tate in 1962.
