Cut in Wood

On the occasion of the upcoming 90th birthday of Franz Gertsch, the MASI invited the artist to Lugano to plan an exhibition devoted to his oeuvre. This has led to a remarkable and striking encounter between Gertsch's outstanding woodcuts and the wood engravings by two artists whom he regards as much more than simply pioneer revolutionaries of xylography. 'Gertsch – Gauguin – Munch' brings together fifteen large-sized woodcuts by Franz Gertsch, along with forty-odd woodcuts by Paul Gauguin and Edvard Munch, especially selected by him. But despite their historical distance and stylistic divergences, these three artists display profound affinities, which extend far beyond the technique they share.
