The forest's call

The Würth Museum, located in Erstein, (25 minutes from Strasbourg) is a white and spacious place whose impressive collection of works is impressive! All these works are grouped under a single theme: the forest. At the same time a place of contemplation, a highly symbolic place or a space for the fantastic, we discover through this promenade “in the forest” all the facets and riches of this theme transcribed by artists such as Max Ernst or Robert Longo, David Hockney, Georg Baselitz, Christo and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner.

The collector Reinhold Würth had the idea to set up an exhibition on the theme of the forest a decade ago. It was first installed at the Kunsthalle Würth in Schwäbisch Hall in 2011, International Year of Forests, to be adapted by the Würth Museum in Erstein.

It is an opportunity to observe closely the low-profile works of internationally renowned artists, under the green prism of a theme that speaks to us.

The exhibition takes place from 19 September 2012 to 19 May 2013 at the Würth France Erstein Museum.
