Matter of the Heart

Wilhelm Busch the Painter


Fellows in red jackets

›Nothing kitsch about him; a well-informed European. Some of his fellows in red jackets belong in a picture gallery‹, wrote Paul Klee appreciatively in 1908, when he visited the memorial exhibition in Munich in honour of Wilhelm Busch (1832–1908). Here the famous creator of humorous picture stories could be discovered as a painter for the first time – with striking portraits, atmospheric genre scenes and animated landscapes, in which peasants in red jackets often attract the eye.
