About the event

Between January 1989 and December 1991 Hubert Wurth was Luxembourg's last ambassador to the Soviet Union. It was the time of the opening, during which the works of the great masters of the Russian avant-garde of the early 20th century, that changed the world of art, finally appeared in the Moscow exhibitions. Suffocated by Stalin, this art had often never been shown. Hubert Wurth was happy to make this discovery under these new conditions, and his own artistic work of these three years reflects this special atmosphere. As an artist then as now, the artist is showing for the first time a selection of his creations made in Moscow some thirty years ago.

Hubert Wurth is an abstract painter born in 1952 in Luxembourg. He lives and works in Luxembourg. During his life he has lived in Luxembourg, Aix en Provence and Paris (FR), Moscow (USSR), The Hague (NL), New York (USA), London (UK) and Vienna (AU) which has had a considerable effect on his painting. He was a co-founder of the "Edward Steichen Award" in Luxembourg, and was a Member of the Board of Directors of MUDAM until 2019. Hubert Wurth has had exhibitions in Paris, London, Salzburg, New York, The Hague, Moscow, and Helsinki among others.
