Summary / Abstract:

LT2013 m. rugsėjo–spalio mėn. Rytprūsių krašto muziejuje (Liuneburgas, Vokietija) buvo surengta Karlo Eulensteino (1892, Klaipėda–1981, Berlynas) tapybos darbų paroda – ji tęsė muziejaus pradėtą dailininkų, kilusių iš Rytų Prūsijos, kūrybos pristatymų ciklą. 2013 m. spalio pabaigoje kiek mažesnės apimties K. Eulensteino parodą Rytprūsių krašto muziejus atgabeno į Lietuvos dailės muziejaus (LDM) Prano Domšaičio galeriją – užsimezgęs ir jau kelerius metus sėkmingai besitęsiantis šių dviejų atminties saugojimo institucijų bendradarbiavimas įgalina Lietuvos visuomenei pristatyti pamirštų ar iki šiol net nežinotų iš Prūsų Lietuvos ir Klaipėdos krašto kilusių dailininkų kūrybą. Straipsnyje aptariami K. Eulensteino biografijos faktai ir kūryba. [Iš leidinio]

ENFrom 25th of October to 8th of December 2013 exhibition of Karl Eulenstein artworks was held at the LAM’s Pranas Domšaitis Gallery in Klaipėda. Karl Eulenstein was the most famous painter of the interwar Klaipėda. His watercolours, oil and tempera paintings were displayed during the exhibition. Majority of the artworks for the exhibition were lent by private persons residing in Germany, several paintings were brought from the collections of the East Prussian Regional Museum (German: Ostpreußisches Landesmuseum) in Lüneburg (Germany). Along with several early Karl Eulenstein’s paintings, which successfully survived the World War II, the major part of the exhibition consisted of “reminiscence paintings”. Unable to visit native lands again, in these artworks the painter attempted to recreate motives and compositions of his pre-war paintings by memory, based on impressions in his mind. In 1919–1923 Karl Eulenstein studied at the Konigsberg Art Academy. In 1926 he moved to Berlin and spent the rest of his life there. However, connection with native lands was never broken. Every summer until 1944 artist came back to his homeland, visited Klaipėda, the Curonian Spit or stayed at the Hermann Blode's Guest House in Nida for longer periods of time. He was a member of Nida artists' colony and was in close contact with painter Ernst Mollenhauer as well as other artists of colony.Hometown, seaside and coastal nature, fishermen, farmers, their everyday life and holidays were among the main themes of Karl Eulenstein’s artworks. His dark, deep, rich colour paintings, subtly revealing spirit of melancholic Eastern Prussia’s landscape, the Curonian Spit’s fishermen life scenes always attracted attention. In Karl Eulestein’s artworks of the 1920s connection between traditional and modern painting is very clear. Characteristic expressive style of the painting remained, even though influence of modern objectivism became evident in the artist’s works of 1930s. At the end of the World War II Karl Eulenstein suffered a double loss – he lost his birthplace and his artworks. In the summer of 1944 he visited Klaipėda for the last time. Few days before the end of the war during bombardments of Berlin painter’s workshop and almost all of his artworks burned down. Unable to travel to Klaipėda region and East Prussia, had lost a large part of his works, Karl Eulenstein still found the strength to start a new creative phase. His post-war late expressionism paintings are especially deep and meaningful. In 1958 Karl Eulenstein received the Fellow East Prussian Cultural Prize for achievements in the field of fine arts. Being rediscovered today his artworks reveal timeless fascination of late expressionism of the second half of the 20th century. [From the publication]
