Josef Hegenbarths Palette
Facets of a Life's Work
The book accompanying the the exhibition of the same title shows a representative selection of the drawing oeuvre of the artist Josef Hegenbarth (1884—1962). Inserted literary miniatures complement the four main circles of his themes and motifs.
In his essay, the art historian Bernhard Maaz composes the artist's major features into a vivid portrait.
