This fall (Oct. 21 — Nov. 24), R 20th Century will be hosting the first solo exhibition of Renate Müller in the U.S. If at all possible, this is something you definitely don’t want to miss!
Renate’s leather and jute animals are simply stunning (see earlier post). Originally designed in the 1960s as therapeutic toys, Renate took over the rights in 1990 and continues to hand-produce very limited quantities of the classic designs as well as new designs.
Thanks to Lily Kane at R 20th for the info (she also mentioned a 5 ft. bear by Renate recently arrived that I’m dying to see)!
