Karl Mediz, After the Bath (drawing, 1915)
In Room 310, the light, vibrant drawing ’After the Bath’ by Karl Mediz (1868–1945) sits well among the found materials of Matthias Schönweger. Mediz’s work is influenced by symbolism and Art Nouveau, and comprises mainly portraits and groups of figures. The Austrian artist moved to Dresden in 1894, and belonged to the Viennese artist group ’Hagenbund’ from 1902 to 1912.
