Franz von Stuck


Franz (von) Stuck (1863 – 1928), was a very influential symbolist/expressionist painter and designer from Munich. He started out as a graphical artist, but soon started creating his own world of myth and imagination. His villa in Munich harbours now a nice Jugendstilmuseum.

Below you can see his interpretation of the Salome legend. Underneath: ‘Wild Chase” (1889).
