Images on Karl May by Sascha Schneider and Rainer Griese

1 July 2017 to 31 March 2018

Art nouveau painter and sculptor Sascha Schneider (1870 – 1927) shared a close friendship with Karl and Klara May, which served as a mutual inspiration. Karl May was so fascinated by Schneider’s symbolic style that the two agreed to cooperate in 1904. Accordingly, the painter created new cover images for Karl May’s works, illustrating the author’s core statement allegorically.

On the 90th anniversary of the death of Sascha Schneider, the Karl May Museum presented the showcase exhibition “Fragile forces – Images on Karl May by Sascha Schneider and Rainer Griese”. Schneider presented the powerful figures in May’s works in particular, while his artworks also show weakness and fragility at the same time. Griese’s modern photographs also focus on this fragility of these forces.
