Marcel van Eeden // Matthias Grünewald

Marcel van Eeden: “Ever since I was a teenager, I have always been fascinated by the life and work of J. K. Huysmans. For a long time, ‘À rebours’ (in the Dutch translation) was my favourite book. In ‘After Nature’, a poem by one of my other favourite authors, W. G. Sebald, I discovered a very impressive description of the life of Matthias Grünewald. Later, I often used Grünewald and his works in my narrative drawings series. In this book on Grünewald by Huysmans, everything seems to come together. The book is not large and heavy; it fits perfectly well into a pocket. It thus comes very close to the much-touted ‘ideal’ book, which makes all other books seem superfluous.” (26 March 2012)
