Visiting the Kupferstichkabinett

Last tuesday me and my fellow illustrator friends Heidi Kull and Miriam Häusler went on an educational excursion to the Kupferstichkabinett, the museum for drawing and prints at the Kulturforum at Potsdamer Platz.

we have been there!
We have been intensively "menzelling" again, as it is already called there, when I bring some friends to examine the original drawings of Adolf Menzel in the study room.

We had a look at the Menzel folders No 155 (portraits in Watercolour, Gouache and Pastells), No 149 (his very late and painterly pencildrawings from 1904/05) and the folder No 260, which contains exquisit figure studies done solemnly with a broad carpenter's pencil on pretty rough textured thick paper.

This study "NG 4/83" (preview from "") is to be found in the Menzel folder No 260.
