In the period from April to September 2019, the famous Paris-based modern art museum Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris was on exhibition at Kunsthalle Würth in Schwäbisch Hall. The 200 masterpieces “From Henri Matisse to Louise Bourgeois” captivated some 142,000 guests in a period of only five months. In addition to Fauvist highlights by Derain, Dufy and others, enthusiastic visitors encountered iconic works such as Delaunay’s Eiffel Tower, Duchamp’s legendary suitcase of miniatures Box in a Suitcase, Klein’s Blue Venus, and a monumental Spider by Bourgeois, as well as the invention of Cubism by Picasso, Braque and Goncharova. The French summer party held on 14 July 2019 also left no visitor wishes unfulfilled.
Previously, “As Far as the Eye Can See. New Insight into the Würth Collection” had already attracted more than 120,000 visitors. Encouraged by this success, the company continued to acquire new works in the fall of 2019. “Up for more. News from the Würth Collection on art since 1960” showcases further highlights of contemporary art.
