Artist Statement

"I chose to draw and paint Piz Corvatsch, the iconicpeak visible from Nietzsche\'s Summer residence in the Swiss Town of Sils im Engadin. Whereas Nietzsche climbed it in Summer, I decided to depict it in winter, to reflect the relentless harshness and the level of difficulty of the Text. Nietzsche\'s monumental work is no easy mountain to climb." - Christian Schlaeffer
