Thomas Schütte Retrospective Opens at Museo Reina Sofía in Madrid

MADRID.- The Museo Reina Sofía presents an exhibition dedicated to the artist Thomas Schütte (Oldenburg, Germany, 1954). The show, which has been curated by Lynne Cooke, is the most comprehensive retrospective of this artist’s work ever organised in Europe and offers visitors a unique and detailed insight into the constant innovations that have characterised his evolution over the last 30 years. The exhibition takes visitors on a tour of the various artistic stages of Schütte’s career, from his early works in the late 1970s while he was still a student to his latest creations. Consequently, as Lynne Cook has commented, the show will feature little-known works by the artist, including those made in the late 1970s while working at Gerhard Richter’s studio and contemporary pieces such as a work created especially for this occasion. The works on display include installations, watercolours, etchings,
