Illustrations by A. Weisgerber for the Brothers Grimm (Germany, ca. 1900).

The painter Albert Weisgerber (1878–1915) worked alongside a group of art titans in Munich before being killed in World War I. From a bio at the Art Directory:

He studied at the “Akademie der Bildenden Künste” from 1897 to 1901, first under Gabriel Hackl, then under Franz von Stuck. He began working for the journal “Jugend” in 1897. Albert Weisgerber met Hans Purrmann, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Willi Geiger and Gino Finetti in Stuck’s painting class in 1898, the same year in which he founded “Sturmfackel”, an association with members such as Alfred Kubin, Rudolf Levy and Alfred Lörcher.

Under the existing dominant society, which produces the miserable pseudo-games of non-participation, a true artistic activity is necessarily classed as criminality.
