Work introduction

Arthur F. Becker (od. Buhr?) was commissioned by the Prinzhorn foundation. Hans Prinzhorn collected drawings by mentally ill patients at the Psychiatric University Clinic in Heidelberg up to the year 1921. Georg Friedrich Haas’ work refers to a sketch by the patient Arthur F. Becker; a sketch with an intricate, dense web of intertwined lines depicting a landscape. The threatening feeling, however, is created by the blank areas of the sketch.
