Struth Photographs Added to Old Masters Exhibition
June 24, 2009

Beginning June 24, photographs by Thomas Struth will replace the Old Master drawings from the Harvard Art Museum in the Lower Gallery.

Thomas Struth (b. 1954) is considered one of the most significant artists using photography today. He came to prominence in his native Germany in the 1970s. With an intent gaze and exacting lens, Struth has expanded his range from early urban landscapes to color portraits, to a series of large-scale photographs staging the interaction between the contemporary world and Western cultural heritage.  In this series, he depicts visitors in some of the world's greatest museums and buildings, including the Musée du Louvre in Paris and the Uffizi in Florence.  Struth's work is thus an excellent addition to Ideal (Dis-)Placements: Old Masters at the Pulitzer.
