Lothar Osterburg

Emanuel von Baeyer Cabinet is pleased to present photogravure works by the artist Lothar Osterburg (Braunschweig, 1961 - still active in New York).

Throughout diverse series of photogravure, Osterburg shapes imaginary sceneries, notably inspired by 18th century artist Giovanni Battista Piranesi and his carceri d’invenzione. Almost working as film stills, Osterburg’s ‘scenes’ are somewhat reminiscent of silent and dark movies of the 1920s directed by Fritz Lang or Sergei Eisenstein.

Working from memory, he creates small-scale models out of readily available or found material, which he then proceeds to photograph through a magnifying glass or macro lens. The scenes are thus brought to lifesize dimensions and printed through the 19th century photographic process of copperplate photogravure.

His prints proved widely collected by public institutions and private collectors and Lothar Osterburg is well known for his unusual and inventive technique of photogravure through which various layers of Old Masters are rejuvenated.
