Past exhibitions: Rodin Rilke Beuys (Fall 2015): Rainer Maria RILKE

In this poet's verses there were passages, standing out prominently, that did not seem to have been written but moulded; words and groups of words that had melted under the glowing touch of the poet; lines that were like reliefs and sonnets that carried like columns with interlaced capitals the burden of a cumulating thought.  Rainer Maria Rilke, Auguste Rodin, translated by Jessie Lamont and Hans Trausil  (New York, Sunwise Turn Inc., 1919)
Rainer Maria RILKE, 1902
