One to Watch: Ute Rathmann

Ute Rathmann

“Drawing is the artist’s most direct and spontaneous expression, a species of writing: it reveals, better than does painting, his true personality.” -Edgar Degas

Degas is one of the artists that has influenced Berlin-based Ute Rathmann, whose stunning drawings of the human form are in many international collections.

Inspired by old masters such as Klimt, Schiele, Toulouse-Lautrec and Goya, this graduate of the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weißensee works from life models, dressing her subjects according to a particular theme, in order to explore the human body and how it relates to clothes, costume, fashion and fabric.

  9. It is always so helpful to see work in progress, to have a window into the artist’s process. I noticed cutouts and I was curious about this apparent jigsaw puzzle aspect to Ute’s work. The end result is, as others have mentioned, very elegant, very traditional. I am also struck the the conservative use of bright color. Thank you for sharing Ute’s work with us!
