Exhibition Catalogs
Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 26
Both these little pictures, by Grashof, are gems. The expression thrown into the almost miniature faces is very fine. Luther, in popular tradition, is represented as encountering Satan, during his sojourn at Wartburg Castle. The artist has here reproduced the supposed rencountre. [P. 18; see entry 01550025 for other work noted in this commentary.]
