Intro
The exhibition’s focus is on a selection from Würth Collection, complemented by several of the artist’s sculptures, as well as by pieces from the Jewellery Museum’s collection – displayed alongside the graphics, and entering into dialog with them. Max Ernst accepted things as they appeared, and took a very associative, unconfined approach, something that opens up numerous possibilities for the interplay between his works and jewelry.
