Hans Gottfried Von Stockhausen: Das Glasbild

The Autonomous Panel

Paintings made of glass, animated by light and thus ever-changing in their colour: Hans Gottfried von Stockhausen’s life-work is unique in the 20th century. In his time teaching at the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Stuttgart (1970 –1985) Stockhausen placed his panels as autonomous pieces of art at the heart of his œuvre; they soon gained international recognition as "Stuttgart Glass."  For the artist, they stood in growing rapport with his graphic work over fifty years, and represented a counterweight to his architecture-bound glass creations. As distinctive and invaluable contributions to modern glass-art, the works of Stockhausen have meanwhile made their way into large museums and private collections throughout the world.
