The National Museum of Wildlife Art send seven paintings to the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany

The National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, lent seven Wilhelm Kuhnert paintings to the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, Germany, for their exhibition, King of the Animals, opening October 25, 2018. The exhibit is a comprehensive retrospective of the life and work of Wilhelm Kuhnert.

“This is the first major retrospective of Kuhnert’s work in decades. To have our artwork featured is a testament to the quality of our collection,” said Adam Harris, Joffa Kerr Chief Curator of Art, “This exhibit also shows that other museums are interested in exploring humanity's relationship with nature, which is a core part of our mission.”

One of the curators at the Schirn Kunsthalle, Ilka Voermann, approached the National Museum of Wildlife Art last year to begin discussions about sending pieces overseas.

There will be more than 50 pieces of art on display in the King of the Animals exhibition. In the National Museum of Wildlife Art’s Permanent Collection, there are 18 paintings by Wilhelm Kuhnert, along with 14 prints/engravings, and 20 sketches/drawings. The seven artworks loaned to the Schirn Kunsthalle Museum will remain on display through January 27, 2019.

Each year, the National Museum of Wildlife Art lends artwork to other museums, ranging from a few loans to a single institution, to creating a traveling exhibition to tour multiple Museums. It is not often that artworks travel overseas, but there are plans to send artwork to other international locations in the future.

More information about the exhibition is available on Schirn Kunsthalle website.
