  1. Dear Andreas.
    I admire the art of Ernst Fuchs, mostly his earlier works and I was thrilled to discover your blog and the beautiful photos you took at the opening. I especially liked the photo in which you shot the view of the gallery through the “Im Kuss der Sphinx” etching. As you can see in this link:

    I have a personal experience with this particular wonderful etching – it bewitches many of its spectators.

    Cheers – Dan

    • Dear Dan,

      at first a citation of your site:

      “There is no doubt in my mind that Ernst Fuchs is a highly gifted and original artist, but I admit I prefer his earlier works on his more recent ones. Some artists manage to keep the urge to search, to look for new ways, to dig deeper without compromising throughout the entire period of their working life. Others sometimes loose the drive on the way. Maybe the commercial temptations are too strong. Or maybe it is omnipotent feelings which are brought about by fame and success, and lead the artist in less inspired ways?”

      – that is an opinion I share as artist even as recipient. The most terrific example concerning the artist Ernst Fuchs I have seen at Thal, Styria, Austria. You may see some photos here on my blog:
      – This does not impair the brilliant genius of Fuchs´early work, especially in the technique of etching.
      Thank you for sharing art-collector Peter Infeld´s last exhibition he organized before death last year – he is still missed in the Austrian cultural life.
      Fortunately his wife Zdenka Infeld still regulary continues Peter´s work.

      ys, Andreas
