"To my Mother" is the main graphic work by the artist Sidonie Springer. The portfolio consists of 10 images drawn by the artist in charcoal and partly tinted in colour, which are given full effect by being reproduced in hand-pressed copperplate prints. Each print is accompanied by introductory words written by the artist herself and are intended to serve as an explanation of the picture. From air and play the path leads to suffering and death. Published by the Society for the Dissemination of Classical Art Berlin. Individual prints: My home was in your arms / You taught me to see the beauty of the earth / You led me to lonely heights, to the truth / Mother, you giver of joy / I kissed the earth that your foot touched / You light in a dark night on earth / Painful rediscovery / Then the world became empty of love for me / In my dreams you come to me / The miracle flower. Foxing.
