From the publisher: "Thomas Struth studied painting under Gerhard Richter and photography under Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf. Museum Photographs by Thomas Struth, who was born in 1954, comprises seventeen large colour photos taken between 1989 and 1992 in the most important museums of the world. He investigates paintings and how they are viewed in a museum -- a complex chain of events involving various perceptual, mediating, and temporal factors, all captured in one single photo."
