The German artist Ruth Baumgarte (1923-2013) is regarded as one of the outstanding women artists of the 20th century. This catalogue focuses on the wide-ranging body of works that resulted from the artist's travels to African countries including Egypt, South Africa, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Zimbabwe. Ruth Baumgarte was interested in the foreign cultures of a continent that was still largely unexplored by European artists at the time. When studied, her paintings, watercolours, and drawings reveal an almost magical quality. Central to the understanding of Ruth Baumgarte's work is the relationship between humans and nature, and the fusion of figure and landscape and light and colour.
