Multitalented artists are not uncommon. Creative people have often excelled in fields beyond their original area of expertise. Poets whose main artistic talent is the written word have in many cases produced original pictorial artworks of their own that extend the scope of their creativity and represent entirely new aspects of artistic expression. Their paintings and drawings justifiably rank alongside their literary output.

A wide variety of pictorial art items are on show in the exhibition, from the classical landscapes of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe to the enigmatic, droll sceneries of Joachim Ringelnatz. Works by the likes of Victor Hugo, George Sand, Hans Christian Andersen and Wilhelm Busch will be on display. The word collages of Herta Müller, winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize for Literature, form the radical yet poetic endpoint in which the author uses words to create both texts and collages with a distinct pictorial aesthetic.

The audio guide makes the literature an integral part of the exhibition. The specific connections between pictorial art and literature are brought home to visitors on the basis of spoken original texts and biographical links.

After the presentation in Ingelheim, the exhibition will run from 27 July to 20 October 2013 at Museum Behnhaus Drägerhaus, Lübeck as a project of Boehringer Ingelheim International Days.
