Natalie Frank: the Brothers Grimm
In this exhibition, the nineteenth-century fairy tales of Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm are explored by new York based Austin native, artist Natalie Frank. Her drawings function as a feminist reimagining of the stories, addressing gender, sexuality, and complex familial dynamics. Drawing upon the history of illustrated books, figuration, and personal and political narrative, Frank’s drawings represent the largest collection of Grimm’s fairy tales ever illustrated by a fine artist.
