KUNZELSAU, GERMANY – The Museum Würth in Künzelsau is devoting an extensive exhibition of more than 100 works to the Karlsruhe artist Emil Wachter. The main focus of the exhibition will be the considerable holdings of paintings and drawings by Wachter in the Würth Collection; these will be complemented by selected works on loan. The exhibits range from delicate watercolours and cycles of drawings to colourfully dense oil paintings to large triptychs. Wachter’s sacred art, which plays an important role in his oeuvre, and in particular his many stained-glass windows, will also be taken into consideration, as will his sculptures. The painter, graphic artist, sculptor and theologian Emil Wachter was born in 1921. Although his art diverged from the established standards of his time from the very start, he was nevertheless firmly rooted in the European cultural heritage.
