Bronze by Peter Steyer

© Silver Hesse

Portraits of Hesse in India ink, oil, and bronze were produced not only by the artist friends who were his contemporaries. Right up until to the present day, the work and person of Hermann Hesse have remained a source of great fascination for many artists, as evidenced by numerous sculptures and pictures that seek to capture the writer's ascetic figure and highly expressive facial features. We here present a small selection of portraits "old and new". The artists:
