A self-taught artist knows no limits

Max Ernst is one of the most dazzling personalities in the 20th-century art world. After experimenting with Expressionism, Cubism, Futurism and Dada, in 1922 the German painter moved to France and joined the Surrealists in Paris. Working with the most diverse materials, his love of experimentation resulted in the invention of novel artistic techniques, such as frottage and grattage. With his extraordinarily multi-facetted oeuvre, Max Ernst considerably broadened the definition of art in the sphere of painting and sculpture. The Fondation Beyeler is home to seven works by Max Ernst: four pictures and three sculptures. The present booklet focuses in particular upon the paintings Snow Flowers (1929) and Swamp Angel (1940) and the remarkable sculpture The King Playing with the Queen (1944).

ANSICHTEN no. 14 takes an in-depth look at the work of Max Ernst. Detailed descriptions, technical data, special features, background information, and questions of interpretation all fall within the scope of this booklet.

ANSICHTEN is aimed at art lovers and teachers looking to engage in greater depth with the works of the Fondation Beyeler.

The journal also features a practical section, which presents ideas, tasks and experiments that may be carried out at the museum, at school or at home.

ANSICHTEN playfully provides readers with thorough knowledge of the works of the Beyeler Collection.
