Klinger, Max (German painter, sculptor, and printmaker, 1857-1920)

Note: German painter and sculptor, best known for his large series of nightmarish etchings. Conscious of, but detached from the new ideas and style of late 19th century Europe, Klinger is difficult to classify, though much of his work can be considered Symbolist. Subjects and influences run the gamut from commentary of prostitution, late 19th century Berlin living conditions, and the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche. His "Beethoven Monument" (1899-1902) pays a monstrous homage to the composer, depicted as a Greek god on a large alabaster throne. Comment on works: graphic artist
