If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away---Henry David Thoreau

Ernst Fuchs: Visionary Artist

Ernst Fuchs is an Austrian visionary artist and one of the founders of the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism (1948). He converted from Orthodox Judaism to Roman Catholicism in 1956. Christian themes can be found in many of his paintings. Fuchs is also a draftsman, printmaker, sculptor, architect, stage designer, poet, and singer. He was a friend of my favorite artist of all time, Salvador Dali.
