One shook up the art world over 500 years ago, the other caused a sensation in the last century. They both had a profound impact on art and they both celebrate their birthdays in May.

French-born and Madrid-based photographer Pierre Gonnord captures the marginalized and invisible members of society in elegant portraits.
Deeply painterly, Gonnord’s photographs draw on the Spanish tradition of portraiture established by Zubarán, Ribera and Velázquez, cloaking their subjects in dark, sober backdrops and bathing their features in a light that draws out every expressive crease and…

Caravaggio's complete works in high-quality reproductions:
Dramatic shifts from foreboding dark to probing light; a realism that exposes all the flaws and folds of human flesh; a surgical explication of almost unbearably tense emotion; and the poised depiction of crucial moments at the very lip of their unfolding: these were among the innovations of Michelangelo Merisi, known as Caravaggio.
Invited to mount an exhibition at the Teatro Fernán Gómez in Madrid, Spanish photographer Cristina de Middel chose to display all her images in exactly the way she has them stored in her studio—in colossal, gorgeous chaos. The result is „Muchismo", a unique display of the photographer’s entire oeuvre.
Varied and entertaining, at times playful and bizarre, "Muchismo" gives de Middel a chance…

“While I may be the first woman in this office, I will not be the last.“ (Kamala Harris)
The legal right of women to vote was established in the United States only 100 years ago; many other countries introduced women's suffrage even later. For a long time, women weren’t involved in decision making, in creative processes or in politics – and an inequality still exists…. Now Kamala Harris…
Never before have we come so close to the master.
Dürer was provocative, curious, a brilliant creator and a visionary genius. He painted himself with equal self-assurance, wether in the pose of Christ or completely naked, was a master of self-marketing, and created the first logo in history with his initials.
Dürer – Meisterwerke im Detail looks at all areas of the artist's wide-ranging production…
An outstanding artist and a renowned photographer:
The story of Niki de Saint Phalle (1930-2002) is that of an artist on a quest for emancipation in a world dominated by men. Her highly individual stance and her profoundly innovative oeuvre left a firm imprint on the cultural landscape of the 20th century.
In the male-dominated world of American photography Margaret Bourke-White (1904-1971) was…

Jules Chéret lead the way for this art form and Henri Toulouse-Lautrec perfected it: At the end of the 19th century the poster was not merely a means of advertisement or political campaigns. Sketched by artists, posters became a favourable artwork to collect, poster-societies were installed and poster-exhibitions presented the diversity of designs. The Affichomanie reached its climax.
After the turn…
Time and again, she appears in various states of undress: Venus, the goddess – whether she was painted by Botticelli and Cabanel or Cranach, Titian and Velázquez. And Eve, the seductress - she's also naked. Goya's Maja, Manet's Olympia, Klimt's Judith - they refer to Venus and Eve, the prototypes of the nude.
Albrecht Dürer depicted himself naked, Mapplethorpe's self-portrait is more explicit.…
Doisneau's „Kiss by the Hôtel de Ville" is one of the most famous photographs in the world. In these days when the coronavirus has changed the way we live, the physical closeness shown here seems almost surreal - cafés and streets full of people, no face covering and no social distance. Certainly today's street photographers will also produce iconic images of these strange times: What they will…
In her drawings, photographs, installations and books, American Artist Roni Horn has been exploring the nature of water and its universal qualities for over 30 years:
“Water… reassures you, affirms you, shows you who you are, ... sighs, sucks, laughs, splishes, splashes, slashes, washes, murmurs, gushes, bubbles, babbles, shimmers, shines, gleams.“
Roni Horn's Dictionary of Water, for example,…
