Have you ever showed a uninformed relative a Cy Twombly painting? Did they tell you it looked like scribble and they could do it? Of course, any right-minded Twombly fan would be offended at such a glib insult.

Currently on display at Dittrich & Schlechtriem in Berlin (formerly Pool Gallery), is the Ute and Werner Mahler's Monalises of the Suburbs, a contemporary study of the most famous painting the world has ever seen.

Capitain Petzel Gallery's diverse show exhibits large scale oil paintings, digital animations, and several hundred inkjet prints of animation stills all from New York-based artist Amy Sillman.
