Max Ernst Retrospective at Fondation Beyeler

May 27, 2013

Max Ernst is considered as one of Modern Art’s most versatile artists. Max Ernst started out as Dadaist in Cologne, then moved to Paris to become one of the leading Surrealist artists. After his emigration to the USA and his return to war-devastated Europe he was finally rediscovered as one of the most fascinating artists of the 20th Century. The comprehensive retrospective Max Ernst at Fondation Beyeler features more than 160 paintings, collages, drawings, sculptures and prints, including major works that can only be seen together in this exhibition in Riehen, Switzerland. Among the highlights of the exhibition are the works La Vierge corrigeant l’enfant Jésus devant trois témoins: André Breton, Paul Èluard et le peintre (1926); Au premier mot limpide (1923), L’habillement de l’épousée / de la mariée (1940); and L’ange du foyer (Le triomphe du surréalisme) (1937). The show runs until September 8, 2013.
