Maria Lassnig (1919-2014) is one of the most important contemporary artists. Her main subject matter is self-portraits, which also depict her appearance, but her artistic focus is on translating her perception of her body into images. Lassnig also assigns the colours according to her perception: "The forehead is given a thought colour, the nose a smell colour, arms and legs a flesh colour; there are pain colours and agony colours, pressure and fullness colours, stretching and pressing colours, [...] - they are all reality colours."

All exhibits are on loan from the collection of Helmut Klewan, who showed the first Lassnig exhibition in Germany at his Munich gallery in 1981.
