The last two and a half years in the life of Baselbased Expressionist Hermann Scherer (1893–1927) were central to his oeuvre. It was during this time that Scherer came into his own as an artist, decisively shedding his earlier influences (Aristide Maillol, Carl Burkhardt, Auguste Rodin) in order to set off on a radical new path inspired by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner. Significantly, the period coincides with the trained stonemason’s first forays into wood.
In focusing on the artist’s work in this medium, the exhibition examines this extraordinarily productive time of upheaval in the artist’s life, one that yielded over a hundred woodcuts and more than twenty-five wood sculptures. For the first time, the fifty-four printing blocks on loan to the Kunstmuseum Basel for more than eighty years will be shown in public alongside prints taken from those blocks.

The Kunstmuseum Basel invites visitors on a journey through art history from the 15th century to the present day at three locations. Masterpieces from the collection, high-caliber special exhibitions and programs offer the public multi-layered approaches to art. The museum's main and new buildings are located in the heart of the city - just a few minutes from the SBB train station, and a short streetcar ride from the Badischer Bahnhof train station. The Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart, dedicated entirely to contemporary art, is idyllically situated on the banks of the Rhine in Grossbasel.
