The dark Sides of Expressionism

In 2018, the Werner Coninx Foundation presented the Bündner Kunstmuseum in Chur with a permanent loan of large parts of his important graphic art collection with almost 1000 works by Cuno Amiet, Giovanni Giacometti, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Erich Heckel, Max Beckmann, Hermann Scherer, Johann Robert Schürch and others. The exhibition shows 95 of these works. The focus is on the ‘dark sides’ of expressionism, apocalyptic landscapes and a look into the abysses of the human soul. The emphasis is on art by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner with works from his time in Dresden, Berlin and finally Davos.
