Thank you.\n\nThomas Schütte continues to work successfully and rigorously both as a figurative sculptor and as a builder of utopian and real architectures. Between these two spheres of activity stands drawing, which runs like an unbroken thread through Schütte’s entire oeuvre. In their lightness, Schütte’s works on paper – watercolors, drawings and etchings – seem to belong to a pictorial world free of the material weight of his sculptures. In the same spirit, the sheet presented here captivates us with its economy of form and the clarity of its colors.
