Museum Würth, Künzelsau


“Apples and Pears and Other Vegetables—Fruit Paintings by Korbinian Aigner in Dialog with the Würth Collection” is dedicated to the legacy of the remarkable Bavarian pastor and pomologist. He cultivated new varieties of fruit and documented hundreds of magically drawn apple and pear portraits on cardboard. As an avowed opponent of the National Socialists, he was imprisoned and continued his cultivation work in the Dachau concentration camp, countering the racial madness of the Nazi regime with the beauty of diversity. The show was created in cooperation with the TUM archive of the Technical University of Munich—the owner of the Aigner estate.
