Lars Bohman Gallery is proud and happy to present the exhibition Original Paintings by Wilhelm von Kröckert
Art critic Sebastian Johans writes in the exhibition catalogue:
It is not so strange that Wilhelm von Kröckert has a lot in common with Ernst Billgren. Wilhelm von Kröckert is Ernst Billgren. Or maybe the other way round. One might say, they even have the name in common. Wilhelm is Ernst Billgren’s middle name and Kröckert is his mother’s East Frisian maiden name and the name he held the first four years of his life.
There are many reasons for experimenting or playing with your name or your brand. Writers like to use a pseudonym when they change genres– in earlier times to hide their identities, nowadays in the hope of creating speculation about who is hiding behind the mysterious name before the great revelation.

Marc RIBOUD, "Salvador Dali, Espagne, 1963", tirage argentique original
Ces portraits, rarement exposés dans leur ensemble, nous révèlent le raffinement de leur composition et toute la singularité du talent de Marc Riboud. Comme le dit Claude ROY « L’humanisme a depuis une trentaine d’année été utilisé comme une injure. Je m’en servirai comme d’une louange, pour honorer Marc Riboud, cet humaniste volant. Car l’humanisme, ce n’est pas de croire que ces hommes sont identiques, c’est de savoir découvrir leur identité à travers les différences. »
Marc RIBOUD,"Gong LI, Chine, 1993", tirage argentique original
These portraits, rarely exhibited all together, reveale the refinements of their composition and the unique talent of Marc Riboud. As Claude Roy said « humanism has been used for thirty years as an insult. I will use it like a praise, to honour Marc Riboud, this flying humanist. Because humanism, it is not to believe that people are the same, but to discover their identity trought their differences.
