The inspiration for this piece came to me as I was looking through a very basic yet very useful book about art. I found this artist, Carl Spitzweg, an artists I had never heard of before but instantly fell in love with!
It is not just the artist and his work, it is his titles that I feel that I can relate to and I’ve chosen ‘The Bookworm’ for my first research.
A little about the artist;
Spitzweg was born in Germany in 1808, trained in the medical feild he is probably best known for being a poet and and artists belonging to the time of romanticism.
(The Bookworm, 1850)
