With my typical caveat about negative opinions on religious subjects and figures, von Grützner goes well beyond people's potential prejudices in this area. His monks are eminently human, showing all the joy and foibles which are the hallmark of the human being. His colours are warm and muted, his lines are organic and lively, and there's a spry liveliness to all his figures that just make one feel good. One thing we know from his work; monks are fun. And fat. And potentially alcoholic! Even being the 200% tetotaller that I am, I still find these chaps HIGHLY amusing.
I hope you will enjoy his stuff as much as I do; he's worth your art-looking time.
