Busch Catalogue



I just purchased this beautiful booklet with drawings by Wilhelm M. Busch. It is a mini catalogue for a 1984 exhibition of some of his circus sketches. Busch drew this gorgeous original sketch right across from the title page. I'd love to frame this little masterpiece...but, it's in a book.

    And to copy it by a hand-drawing isn't and wouldn't look the same...Yes, it is a sakrileg to think about it...

    If you can't get this original "Masterpiece"...Perhaps it excists a "Replication" by W.M. Busch...
    Good Luck!

    1. P.S. I can't get the idea out of my mind that this drawing can be a template for a wire sculpture...

  2. I aspire to be able to concentrate so much information in so few lines so gracefully, like in that tiger.

  3. Als Deutscher darf man bei Wilhelm M. Busch keinesfalls das M. vergessen, ansonsten ist man bei einem anderen ber├╝hmten Wilhelm Busch ;-)
