Aminals In Art – A guest curation by Hidden Gallery

Throughout the History of Art, Animals have served (and still do serve) as an important source of inspiration for artists. Some choose to depict animals purely for their natural diversity and beauty, like Damien Hirst with his depiction of the butterfly in Psalm: Deus, Deus Meus, 2010. However, others choose to depict animals for their symbolic meaning, such as Picasso with his depiction of the dove in Colombe de la Paix, 1961.
