About The Human Figure




Michael Werner Gallery, London reopens the gallery with a new group exhibition About the Human Figure, which will run in tandem with the summer online exhibition The Human Figure. On view at Michael Werner Gallery, London will be a selection of major paintings and sculpture by James Lee Byars, Enrico David, Peter Doig, Florian Krewer, Francis Picabia, A.R. Penck, Sigmar Polke, Raphaela Simon, and Don Van Vliet.

From the beginning of time, humans have desired to see themselves reflected in art. The human figure was rendered on cave walls and carved into stones to be carried as totems or idols. Since antiquity, artists have expanded on these early impulses, and the portrayal of the human figure has a long tradition in the history of art. Displaying works created from 110 years ago until today, About the Human Figure explores the limitless possibilities of the human figure in painting and sculpture.
