J. R. Witzel and Fritz Hegenbart

Back to Jugend today.  These are both from the same issue of the magazine.

Ordinarily I would remove the text surrounding an image, but in this case it’s verse with plenty of white space, and I like the layout here:

J. R. Witzel was certainly one of the most prolific contributors to Jugend, and a good deal of his Jugend work can be seen on the web.  Despite its religious implications, I love the symbolism of this particular piece.
