Horst Antes 

Pictures and sculptures from the Würth Collection
22.2. – 20.10.2019

Horst Antes (*1936), one of the outstanding representatives of New Figuration in Germany, became known to a large audience in his early years because of his motif of the so-called ”Kopffüssler” or head-footer. He created this art figure in the early 1960s and it is to be found in many forms, both in his paintings and in his sculptures. It has engaged the artist for decades due to its large physical and above all emotional scope.

Horst Antes lives and works in Sicellino/Italy and Karlsruhe-Wolfartsweier/Germany. With the exhibition at the Forum Würth Chur, for the first time in Switzerland the Würth Collection is showing its extensive holdings of works by Horst Antes with which it can fully cover all the individual phases in the artist’s oeuvre.

Please already notice the date of the opening: Thursday, 21th February 2019, 6 pm.

Current Exhibition

Marc Chagall (actually Moishe Zakharovich Shagalov, 1887–1985) is one of the outstanding artists of the 20th century. He knew how to combine memories of his Jewish-oriented childhood in Russia with the latest art movements in Paris. The extraordinary popularity of the artist, who was particularly apt at presenting emotions and empathy to the viewer, was based on his capacity to link reality with imagination.

The exhibition in the Würth Forum in Chur not only shows individual works but, above all, a cycle on the Bible consisting of 25 color lithographs. All works come from the artist’s late work.

The exhibition is open 7 days a week!
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday 11 am – 5 pm
Free Admission
