  • Walter Gramatté: ›Lenz‹, 1924/25
    Image Series of 13 Etchings on Georg Büchner's Tale ›Lenz‹

  • In the center of Büchner’s tale is the psychically sensitive writer Jakob Lenz, whose mental state visibly worsens to the point where he confesses to a murder he did not commit. Unlike the series ›Wozzeck‹, Gramatté does not illustrate individual episodes. Instead he concentrates on the main figure, embedded in only two depictions of nature: »The first has massed clouds, sun, thunderstorms, black, white, and within a black pine, the other is the same, but calm, grey, worn-out and without affection, it concentrates totally on drawing. In between desperate, complains, mourns, suffers, subsides Lenz« (W. Gramatté, 1924).
