Of Sharks and Sheep

A new exhibition celebrating the work of the notorious contemporary British artist Damien Hirst has just been launched at the Tate Modern Gallery in London.

The retrospective, which runs from April 4th to September 9th, will include iconic sculptures from his Natural History series, including The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living from 1991, in which he suspended a shark in formaldehyde.

The Library owns a variety of books by Hirst and featuring his work, and you can find out a lot more about the artist by browsing among our art & design databases through Library Catalogue Plus.
