Does anyone have information on PETER WEISS?


Hello everyone,

I’m helping locate some artworks for an upcoming exhibition in Spain. I’m researching Peter Weiss’s paintings (8 Nov 1916 – 10 May 1982), a German writer, painter, graphic artist, and experimental filmmaker who adopted Swedish nationality.

He’s not really known for his artwork (he’s better known as a writer), although I did find some expositions (mainly in Sweden). Here is a quick list of the exhibitions I found, though they did not have a catalogue I could consult online:

Bochum Art Museum, “Vanishing point Paris. Peter Weiss and the avant-garde” (11 Nov 2006 – 14 Jan 2007).
Uppsala Art Museum, “Peter Weiss” (3 Sept 2016 – 8 Jan 2017).
Södertälje Konsthall, “Paintings, Collages, Drawings 1933–1960 By Peter Weiss” (1976).

I need help locating three specific artworks:

Skizze für Die Maschinen greifen die Menschheit an, 1935. Tusche, Wasserfarbe, 18,5 x 22,5 cm – nicht signiert – skizze für Kat. -Nr.25
Gedicht zum Weltthteater. 1937
Skizze für Das Grosse Weltthteater. 1937 – Bleistiff, Wasserfarbe, 33 x 25 cm – nicht signiert

If you have any information about any museum or private collection where I might find these works, please share it with me.

Thank you all in advance!
