Thomas Schütte

For several decades, Thomas Schütte (b. Oldenburg, Germany 1954) has produced watercolor sketches of friends and acquaintances as well as numerous self-portraits. These works were often created in sequence, approaching the same subject numerous times as a means of engaging with the changing nature of the sitter. Each new approach captures a particular emotional state or specific moment in time.

Schütte’s recent solo exhibitions include presentations at Nouveau Musée National de Monaco (2012); Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2012); Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2010); and Haus der Kunst, Munich (2009). Schütte has received numerous awards and prizes, including the Düsseldorf Prize in 2010 and the Golden Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2005.
