Stanisław Stückgold:
Intoxicated by God

Something ascetic, something God-intoxicated, a consuming vacuum of devouring passionStSt

Stückgold is Polish, and after a life full of whirlwind events he turned to art, first to sculpture and then to painting. For him, painting is not merely the making of pictures; for him it is also a grasp of the spiritually conceivable resolution, it is a desire for research. There is something ascetic, something God-intoxicated, a consuming, sucking, devouring passion in the works of art that come from this solitude.”

Paul Westheim, 1919
