A founding member of the Berlin Secession, August Gaul looked to the animal kingdom as a source of inspiration unspoiled by industrialised life. His sculptures, prints and paintings are among 250 works on show in this exhibition at Kunstmuseum Bern (4 June–24 October) – along with zoological books, photographs and artworks by his contemporaries. Together, these works provide a record of evolving European attitudes to animals at the turn of the 20th century. Find out more from the Kunstmuseum Bern’s website.
