José de Gumiarães
From artist to anthropologist
Würth Collection and loans

1 July 2020 to 25 April 2021, extended until 18 July 2021

José de Guimarães (*1939) has drawn his inspiration for sixty years from sources that are as special as they are personal. His anthropological approach and artistic eye is expressed in a distinctive, colourful, graphic and at the same time extremely material language. Around 290 pictures and sculptures of this exceptional artist have been collected in the Würth Collection by the entrepreneur Reinhold Würth.

Again and again José de Guimarães deals with the existential theme of life and death, which is not least of all dominant in most cultures; with his expressive application of paint of almost magical intensity he transforms it into an expression of unrestrained vitality. The exhibition at Forum Würth Rorschach documents the artistic development of this cultural border crosser. A part of his important collection of African sculptures will be juxtaposed with his own works that originate from the Würth Collection or were made available by the artist on loan. This leads to a unique and inspiring dialogue.
