Until January 31st 2021
The Guerry Columns, a major work Georges Jeanclos (1933-1997), joined recently the mahJ’s collections thanks to an exceptional donation by the artist’s family of a full-scale terracotta study of the bronze monument erected in the hamlet of Guerry at Savigny-en-Septaine in the Cher. A poignant evocation of one of the crimes of the Shoah perpetrated on the French territory, this work constitutes a major enrichment of the mahJ’s contemporary collection.

Max Wechsler’s donation of works to the mahJ consecrates the long dialogue between the museum and the artist, awarded the Prix Maratier by the Fondation Pro mahJ in 2003.
