“Richard Wagner: Ranting and Roving” – caricatures by Matthias Ose

16/05 – 08/07/2013 Commerzbank Leipzig

“Twas in the merry month of May that Richard Wagner hatched one day, but those who love him most do say, the egg is where he should have stayed.” This bitterly ironic disclosure came from Wagner himself, in a self-caricature of 1855. For almost twenty years, Matthias Ose has been looking at the life and work of Richard Wagner from an ever-changing perspective, as has been demonstrated through numerous exhibitions from Lucerne to Bayreuth, from Berlin and Riga to Venice. To mark the maestro’s bicentenary a biography with caricatures is being shown, comprising around 70 plates.
