Based in Stuttgart, contemporary artist Laurenz Theinert moves photography into an ethereal dimension using a blend of light and his own imaginative intuition. Through Sept. 15, visitors to Museum Ritter in Waldenbuch, Germany, can immerse themselves in Theinert’s world of visual language as expressed through light and sound performances, light art, installations and photographic works.

Among the works on view is Randerscheinungen (Peripheral Phenomena), in which the artist explores the edges of the photographer’s view, rather than a central object or scene. In the series Farbreste (Leftover Colours), Theinert utilizes digital imaging to reveal the subtle colors that may be discerned in greyscale settings such as concrete or cement walls. The results are mesmerizing color compositions that lend themselves toward the psychedelic.

In several of the installations included in this new exhibition, Theinert plays and experiments with how different light effects and shadows result in new spatial experiences. Farblichtaum (Coloured Light Room) is a walk-in space where colors undulate and change in a way meant to suggest movement. Both Awakening and Gespinst (Weave) transform depending upon the rhythm of light played out upon their surfaces; the same viewer experience is part of the multipart series Every Now and Then and Tagundnachtgleiche [Equinox].

Founded by RITTER SPORT company co-owner Marli Hoppe-Ritter, Museum Ritter is a private institution largely dedicated to geometrical abstract art from the 20th and 21st centuries. The collection includes close to 1,200 creations built around the concept of the square as a form, and ranges from objects and sculptures to paintings and graphic works. Concurrent with the Theinert exhibit is Hommage à la France, with works by Auguste Herbin, Victor Vasarely, Leo Breuer, Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV) and others. The museum is located at 27 Alfred-Ritter-Strasse, and is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday–Sunday.

The town of Waldenbuch is about 10 miles south of Stuttgart.

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.

Krakow’s Old Town Charms with Stunning Beauty, Museums and Great Food

A stop in Krakow would not be complete without a visit to the Lady with an Ermine, a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, said to be second only to the Mona Lisa. One of four extant Da Vinci portraits, it depicts a young woman, mistress of Ludovico Sforza, embracing an outsize ermine thought to be a reference to Ludovico’s nickname “the white ermine.” The national treasure is a highlight of the significant collection in the city’s Czartoryski Museum, the country’s oldest, comprising three historical buildings: a 19th-century monastery, the 16th-century Municipal Arsenal and the neo-Gothic Palace built in the 19th century for the prominent noble Czartoryski family whose ancestor, Princess Izabela, founded the museum in 1796.
