The French artist Tomi Ungerer was one of the major and also most provocative illustrators of the present day. His enormous oeuvre encompasses more than 40,000 drawings, oil paintings, poster designs, collages, lithographs, woodcuts and objects. Then there are his 140 books, ranging from social satire to fairy tales, including modern children's classics such as “The Three Robbers” and “Moon Man”.
The exhibition at Forum Würth Rorschach, based on the rich holdings of 240 Ungerer works from the Würth Collection, provides a cross-section through the enormous and fascinating oeuvre of this highly relevant artist.
