About the exhibition

The important painter and sculptor Max Ernst, co-founder of Surrealism and one of the most important and influential German artists of the 20th century, would have celebrated his 130th birthday on April 2, 2021. On this occasion, Galerie Thomas is showing a selection of paintings, works on paper and sculptures from six decades of his work from March 1st to June 27th, thus enabling a concentrated overview of his extensive oeuvre.

Max Ernst's works have always been part of the programme of Galerie Thomas, and have been shown in many exhibitions and at art fairs, not least in two solo exhibitions of the artist. Now a group of outstanding pictures and sculptures is to pay tribute to the genius of Max Ernst's artistic work.

The exhibition will be shown physically with the original works in the premises of Galerie Thomas in Munich, as well as made accessible digitally expanded.

Interested visitors are invited to get live information about individual works in front of the original via a zoom meeting.


"In my opinion, it is not to be despised if you remember the pictures that you have now and then read out of stains on the wall, from the hearth ashes, from clouds and water: if you look at them carefully, you will discover extremely admirable structures that the genius of the painter can use to create battles between animals and humans, landscapes or monsters, devils or other fantastic objects that do you honor."
