Pad zu von Hinzel u. Dem wilden lenchen etching Pellegrini 1917

Van Hinzel Dem Wilden Lenchen by A.H. Pellegrini.

Artist: Alfred Heinrich Pellegrini (Switzerland, Basel, 1881 - 1958)

Pellegrini commissioned this engraving for the German writer Alfred Döblin for his book About Hinzel and the wild Lenchen.

Döblin, Alfred (1878–1957), German writer.
He wrote remarkable fairy tales for adults, such as ‘Der Ritter Blaubart’ (‘The Knight Bluebeard’, 1911), ‘Vom Hinzel und dem wilden Lenchen’ (‘About Hinzel and the wild Lenchen’, 1917), and ‘Märchen von der Technik’ (‘Fairy Tale of Technology’, 1935).
In his famous ‘Märchen vom Materialismus’ (‘Fairy Tale of Materialism’, 1948) Döblin illustrated the disastrous consequences of Demokrit's materialistic nuclear theory.
