Josef Moroder Lusenberg (1846 – 1939)
Among artists, art historians, gallery operators, and collectors, Josef Moroder Lusenberg has long been regarded as a highly underrated man. But now, it's finally here: The Museum de Gherdëina, the Istitut Ladin, and the South Tyrolean Culture Institute would like to help this native son of Gröden/Gardena achieve the recognition he deserves in two comprehensive exhibitions.At the House of Culture in St. Ulrich / Ortisei, his artistic development and the environs in which he worked will be presented. And at the exhibition in the Ex-Museion in Bozen/Bolzano, visitors can become acquainted with the private side of Moroder Lusenberg, read: his small-format oil sketches and water colors. Approx. 100 works will be presented, almost all of them from private collections which have hitherto not been available for public viewing. These initiatives are being funded both by the aforementioned institutes and the government department for German Culture, the department for Ladin Culture, and the community of St. Ulrich / Ortisei.
