Peter Schmersal




Peter Schmersal is known for his expressive reworking of the traditional genres of the still life, landscape and self-portrait, in which he engages in a compelling contemporary dialogue with the masterworks of western narrative painting. Appropriating and reinventing familiar themes and motifs from the late Medieval period to the Baroque, Schmersal creates his compositions with a gestural language entirely his own.

Born in Wuppertal, Germany, Peter Schmersal lives and works in Berlin. Past solo exhibitions have included Kunstmuseum Solingen, Solingen; Von der Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal; Goethe-Institut, Paris; Galerie Karsten Greve, Cologne and Paris; Angles Gallery, Los Angeles and Edward Thorp Gallery, New York. His work has also featured in exhibitions at Museum Frieder Burda, Baden-Baden; Museum Baden, Solingden; National M. K. Ciurlionis Art Museum, Kaunas and Kunstverein fr dei Rheinlande und Westfalen, Dsseldorf. His work is in the collections of the Museum Frieder Burda and the Von Der Heydt Museum, and numerous private collections.
