Summary

Deutsch: Der Töpfermeister. Öl auf Pappe. (Um 1890). 18,9 x 14,5 cm. Gmelin 1030.

Wilhelm Busch (1832–1908) German painter and poet, best known for his drawings, which were accompanied by wise, satiric, doggerel verse. His Bilderbogen (pictorial broadsheets) can be considered precursors of the comic strip. In 1859, after study at academies in Düsseldorf, Antwerp, and Munich, Busch began to contribute his series of comic sketches to Fliegende Blätter and Münchener Bilderbogen, the leading German weeklies. These were followed by his continuous pictorial narratives with short verse-texts, including Max und Moritz, Der heilige Antonius von Padua, Die fromme Helene, Hans Huckebein, Dideldum!, and Herr und Frau Knopp. By 1910 more than half a million copies of Max und Moritz (which was the forerunner of “The Katzenjammer Kids”) had been printed in German, and his works had been translated into many languages.
