The fantastic, often erotic to grotesque image worlds of Friedrich Schröder-Sonnenstern are considered as examples of outsider art. Sonnenstern, who had a veritable psychiatric career in his earlier years, did not begin to draw until he was over 50. This is where he was able to express his visions. The motif of the goddess of haste, or Mondelinchen, which he created here in 1949 in an early drawing, appears several more times in his later work.
Schröder-Sonnenstern did not always have a good reputation in the art world. Through his enormous productivity - also by means of helpers - he also contributed to this himself. «At the same time, casually said the artist, who was increasingly addicted to alcohol, there was one infallible mark of authenticity: the splashes of chewing tobacco on the paper.» from: Dorothée Brill, Mondmoralische Praxis, 07.01.2014, Link.
