An art exhibition showcasing the work of Swiss portrait artist, Anton Graff, is now open to public in Germany.

The artist painted the faces of the rich and famous during the German enlightenment. Graff was said to be able to look into a person's soul and portray their spirit on a canvas. Royals, artists and merchants lined up to have him paint their portraits. Now, 200 years after his death, Graff's paintings are once again in the spotlight at the Old National Gallery in Berlin. The exhibition features 90 paintings and 50 drawings, from an iconic painting of Frederick the Great, to self-portraits and family portraits of merchants. The art exhibition runs until February 2014.
