Das Klinger-Haus

ARTIST: Max Richter @sketchermax, Germany

ARTIST STATEMENT:The Klinger House in Leipzig, Germany, belonged to the family of the Artist Max Klinger (1857-1920), and was built where his birth home used to stand. The man with walking stick and top hat and his wife where probably the last guests of a big festival in Leipzig, strolling through the city’s centre but they reminded me how people would have looked like back in the time when Max Klinger was born here, so I included them.

MEDIA: Watercolor, Fountain Pen
SURFACE: Alpha Series — Heavyweight — 150 gsm — White — Medium Grain Surface

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Max Richter is an artist living in Leipzig, Germany. He loves to draw on location from observation mainly in pen, ink and watercolour.
