Thomas Struth takes mesmerizing photographs that express his belief in photography as “a tool of scientific origin for psychological exploration. After his early black-and-white series of deadpan views of cityscapes eerily devoid of any signs of urban life, in 1989, Struth began work on his best-known cycle, the “Museum Photographs.” In these large-format, color-saturated photographs, Struth captures individuals and crowds looking at famous works of Western art in the world’s most popular museums. While looking at the “Museum Photographs,” viewers are confronted with the act of looking itself and the social complexities of seeing and being seen. Struth is now one of Germany’s most widely exhibited and collected artists. This print is sold unframed. Signed and numbered on recto. Please contact the gallery with any questions.
