1879-1947, GERMANY

INSPIRED BY SCEANCES, HIS APOCRYPHAL VISIONS, FINGER-PAINTED IN PITCH-BLACKNESS, DESCRIBED ALIENATED LANDSCAPES AND PORTRAITS OF THE SO-CALLED OTHERS. THESE WERE ACCOMPANIED BY DENSE, SUPPOSEDLY EXPLANATORY TEXT, ASCRIBED TO THE DEPARTED VOICES OF ART HISTORY’S LUMINESCENT MANY.
