Myth, Legends, and Cultural Renewal

The image I chose to feature from this current exhibit is a lithograph titled: "Dream of Falcons," from 1905 by Austrian artist Carl Otto Czeschka. Forgive the wrinkle in the center, that was provided courtesy of the US mail service.

On view until August 16th, at the LA County Museum of Art, this exhibition includes work by Ernst Barlach, David Hockney & Anselm Kiefer. The exhibition explores how different artists have used Germanic myths and legends as source material for visual art - including the rather terrifying fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm.
