The art world has long fallen for Helnwein's work. In its permanent collection, the de Young Museum has a stunning 8-by-10-foot Helnwein painting called Epiphany II (Adoration of the Shepherds), which depicts a room full of Nazi guards smiling and guffawing over a dark-haired Aryan boy held by a young, bare-breasted woman. Like Gray Mouse 3 and Disasters of War 35, Epiphany II (Adoration of the Shepherds) offers a tense, discomforting scene — beautifully drawn, with darkness and lightness exaggerating sightlines and perspective. In 2000, SFMOMA featured a Helnwein mouse painting in its exhibit, "The Darker Side of Playland: Childhood Imagery from the Logan Collection." In 2004, the Legion of Honor held a Helnwein retrospective, followed in 2011 by a retrospective at Sacramento's Crocker Art Museum called "Gottfried Helnwein: Inferno of the Innocents."
