Neue Galerie New York is pleased to present "Richard Gerstl," the first first museum retrospective in the United States devoted to the work of the Austrian Expressionist (1883-1908). Gerstl was an extremely original artist whose psychologically unorthodox oeuvre that defied the reigning concepts of of style and beauty of his time. The lonsgstanding secrecy surrounding Gerstl's dramatic and untimely suicide at the age of 25, and the scandalous love affair that preceded his death only magnify the legend that has grown around this lesser known, but influential member of Vienna's artistic avant-garde.
