Max Ernst at Tinguely Museum Basel
Museum Tinguely (Bâle)
Max Ernst – In the Garden of Nymphe Ancolie
12.09.07 – 27.01.08
About 150 works of art loaned from international museums and many privately owned pieces that are seldom on show to the public go on display. The exhibition focuses on selected aspects of Max Ernst’s oeuvre, with the monumental wall painting Pétales et Jardin de La Nymphe Ancolie taking centre stage. A group of works from the 1930s that explore the theme of gardens are planted around this centrepiece. Other subjects include notions of automatism and hazard, mechanics and eroticism.
