Max Ernst Museum des LVR, Brühl

Max Ernst is a child of the major upheavals of the 20th century. As a painter, sculptor, illustrator and poet he reflects the core of his time. He dives into the unknown. In his pictures, sculptures, diagrams and books he shows the world under its skin and becomes one of the forerunners of Dadaism and Surrealism.

You can see more than 70 of his sculptures in the museum together with his entire graphic output. The heart of the museum is formed by the D-Paintings that are presented in their entirety for the first time; they consist of 36 drawings, which Max Ernst gave his wife Dorothea Tanning as birthday gifts and tokens of love.
