Travel Tip: Art and Archaeology in Austria
Max Ernst: Retrospective

Max Ernst: Retrospective
VIENNA  •  Albertina  •  Ongoing
Presenting a selection of 150 paintings, collages, and sculptures, as well as relevant examples of illustrated books and documents, the exhibition will assemble works related to all of Max Enrst's periods, discoveries, and techniques, thereby introducing his life and œuvre within a both biographic and historical context.

Together with Matisse, Picasso, Beckmann, Kandinsky, and Warhol, Max Ernst no doubt numbers among the leading figures of 20th-century art history. An early protagonist of Dadaism, a pioneer of Surrealism, and the inventor of such sophisticated techniques as collage, frottage, grattage, decalcomania, and oscillation, he withdraws his work from catchy definition.

This exhibition is being compiled in collaboration with the Fondation Beyeler.
Guest curators: Werner Spies and Julia Drost
