Original title:  Die Toteninsel

Here the artwork is representing the Island of the Dead, in its dark and isolation, expression of loneliness, and final faith. A boat flowing slowly toward a mysterious Island of tall dark trees with the high rocks surrounded it.

Max Klinger  was a German symbolist painter, sculptor, printmaker, and writer. Klinger was born in Leipzig and studied in Karlsruhe. An admirer of the etchings of Menzel and Goya, he shortly became a skilled and imaginative engraver in his own right. He began creating sculptures in the early 1880's.
