Berlin museum celebrates dogs with dedicated exhibition

Written by Bronwyn Hall

A Berlin museum has launched a canine focussed exhibition in order to celebrate dogs. Oh, and dogs are allowed in to see it for themselves!

The Kupferstichkabinett (Museum of Prints and Drawings, in English) has compiled 100 doggy centred works from watercolours, sketches, drawings and prints. Featuring artists such as Rembrandt and Dieter Roth; some works have even been displayed at dog eye-level so that your canine companion can also take in the art.

They say: ‘The collection contains scores of outstanding animal pictures, by some of the greatest draughtsmen and printmakers, from Agostino Carracci, Albrecht Dürer, and Rembrandt to Adolph Menzel, Otto Dix, and Dieter Roth. The drawings, prints, oil sketches, and watercolours from the collection give a vivid impression of the variety of modes of representation that artists have adopted over the centuries to capture the essence of our canine friends.’

The exhibition, called ‘Gone to the Dogs’, runs from 26.06.2015 to 20.09.2015.
