Star of the painting scene is happy about award

At the end of September, the “Oper! Award” which was presented for the first time, was awarded to painter Neo Rauch for his stage design for the Wagner opera Lohengrin in Bayreuth. In Vienna, he has now been presented with the European Cultural Award Taurus for Visual Arts. He dedicated the award to all those “who, especially in Leipzig, lead the brush even more courageously, even more daringly, even more insubordinately across the canvas than I do.”
