Lotto No. 101


Helmut Leherb (Leherbauer) *


(Vienna 1933-1997) “Leherb Genial”, signed, dated Leherb 64 and with inscription on the reverse: Leherb Paris 1964, oil on canvas, 55.4 x 46.3 cm, on a stretcher

Provenance:
Galleria Viotti Torino (label on the reverse with a description of the painting and stamp); Private Ownership, Italy In 1964 Leherb, with his Time Destruction Manifesto, was nominated for the Biennale in Venice, yet his participation was prevented by the government reshuffling of the new minister of education, Theodor Piffl-Percevic. What had been planned was a dark blue pavilion, in which dead doves, umbrellas and dolls would be attached to the walls. An art scandal loomed, which the tone-setting art journal in Paris, “Arts et Loisirs”, entitled “The first scandal of the Biennale in Venice!”. The German magazine “Stern” featured the scandal on the front page: “Surrealist Leherb: No white mice for Venice” ... see Wikipedia
