WINTERREISE - A sequence of 24 etchings inspired by Schubert's song cycle


Die Winterreise (The Winter Journey) is a cycle of 24 poems originally written by German lyricist Wilhelm Müller (1794-1827). Franz Peter Schubert (1797-1828) adapted them in his art songs. With the etchings I aim to illustrate mood and emotions as intensively as possible while focussing on the landscape. Read complete statement

This project originally started at the beginning of 2020 as my MA degree project, and is now the product of months spent optimising my own workflow, equipment and technique. Etching is one of the most complicated traditional techniques, where every part of the process and hardware must work. You can find out more about my work method here.

The etchings are all 30 x 40 cm large.
