Artist's Description

Lübeck,
Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, Sep 2014

Home of three Nobel Prize winners, including, Thomas Mann for Literature:
German essayist, cultural critic, and novelist, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1929. Among Mann’s most famous works is Buddenbrooks (1901), which appeared when he was 26. He began writing it during a one-year stay in Italy and completed it in about two and a half years. The book outraged the citizens of Lübeck, who saw it as a thinly veiled account of local incidents and figures, although Mann never mentions the name of the city.

“A man lives not only his personal life, as an individual, but also, consciously or unconsciously, the life of his epoch and his contemporaries.” (from The Magic Mountain, 1924)
