ADOLPH MENZEL: THE QUEST FOR REALITY

Written by Busch, Werner
The work of Adolph Menzel (1815-1905) is widely regarded as the epitome of realist art.

A man of very short stature, Menzel was excluded from many aspects of life, and so his struggle with reality was also a struggle to assert himself.
