The new exhibition of the Archaeological Museum Hamburg

Margrit Rohmann – Retrospective


August 15 to September 15, 2019


Loud and quiet are no opposites, they rather require each other. He who knows not one side cannot cope with the other. This is how one can describe the works of Margit Rohmann, to be seen from 15th August to 15th September in the special exhibition “Margit Rohmann – Retrospective for her 75th Birthday” at the City Museum Harburg. The artist’s creations, for the first time presented so comprehensively to the public, include powerful, nearly expressionistic paintings as well as ones done in fine, poetic watercolours.


This year the Harburg artist Margit Rohmann would have turned 75 years old. Born 1943 in Celle she grew up in Hamburg and lived many years in Harburg. After her death, her husband Ernst Brennecke consigned her complete legacy to the City Museum Harburg. Her works comprise numerous paintings in watercolour, egg tempera and oil crayon, in addition to woodcuts and photographs, all of them featuring a meticulous view of the world, full of details and full of love for colours and light. In her creations the artist always deals with the environment. She constantly questioned what she had seen and painted. Landscapes became abstracted, humans typed. At the North Frisian Wadden Sea she discovered an immense blaze of colours and in her Harburg series the street Harburger Ring was depicted in a very unique way. At Eliška Stölting‘s glass gallery in Hittfeld she discovered special means of expression. She took photographs from the insides of the glass objects on display in order to find new worlds of colour and surfaces.



Margit Rohmann’s involvement in art began immediately after her school days. She visited the art school Alsterdamm. Later she was a student of the painter Brigitte Nolden for many years and after that studied printed graphics under Peter Fetthauer for two years. She took educational journeys to Hungary, La Palma, Eastern Frisia, Rugia, Paris, England, Spain, to the Moselle river and recurrently to Northern Frisia. She spread her knowledge as a tutor, first at the “Verein Arbeiterkultur” (today’s “Kulturwerkstatt”) and later at the Volkshochschule (the adult education centre). Among her numerous exhibitions were the ones in Harburg (Sparkasse Harburg-Buxtehude, Produzentengalerie Schwarzenbergstraße and Bücherhalle), Jesteburg (atelier Frank Pein), Jork (gallery „neue diele“), Hamburg (central station), Seevetal-Hittfeld (glass gallery Stölting and rail museum), Hollenstedt, Timmendorf Beach and Klingberg/Pönitz.
