The National Museum presents "Der Hund Erinnerung" by Markus Gutmann.
The National Museum presents "Der Hund Erinnerung" by Markus Gutmann. The rare and strong showing of over a decade of drawings by the artist is on display until Saturday the 28th of January. The exhibition side steps much of the clichés of Berlins common art scene fodder and presents a sensitive and convincing installation of portraits by the artist of people he has met and known through the years. His perceptions are nuanced and varied, ranging from naive to classical depictions in a playful but serious pursuit. As in life, a hounds sense of smell can reveal far more than our limited sight. In a sense, the artist has looked at each "person" and revealed the individuals identity as few can. The artists hunt is complete.
