Die blaue Stunde (1890) - Max Klinger


Max Klinger (1857-1920) was a German symbolist painter and sculptor.

His best known work was a series of etchings entitled Paraphrases about the finding of a glove. These pictures were based on images which came to Klinger in dreams after finding a glove at an ice-skating rink.

Klinger is cited by many artists (notably Giorgio de Chirico) as being a major link between the symbolist movement of the 19th century and the start of the metaphysical and surrealist movements of the 20th century. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Klinger [May 2005]
