about

"Dust of Stars. A Drawn Novel" is a monumental cycle of 524 sheets filled with pencil drawings and inscribed by hand. Franz Erhard Walther (b. Fulda 1939; lives and works in Fulda) spreads out a tableau of his time organized by his own life that begins in 1942, during World War II, and ends in 1973, when the artist’s reductive works with their emphasis on materials and processes had gained recognition. Events from his childhood and youth in Fulda, notes on his time at the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts, where Walther studied with Gerhard Richter and Jörg Immendorff under Karl Otto Götz, encounters with Mark Rothko, Dick Higgins, and Barnett Newman in late-1960s New York, as well as moments from Walther’s time as a teacher at the University of Fine Arts of Hamburg bring the history of art after 1945 to life. With an essay by Sylvia Martin, deputy director, Kunstmuseen Krefeld.
