By Erik Neutsch
Erik Neutsch sucht in seinem mit großem Atem und sprachlich brillant erzähltem Roman nach den Wurzeln und Kräften, die Grünewalds Werk beflügelt haben, nach den Quellen seines über die Jahrhunderte fortwirkenden Schaffens und den Ursachen seines erzwungenen Scheiterns. Allegorisch versucht er dabei auch auf die stets aktuelle Frage zu antworten, wie sich Künstler im gesellschaftlichen Umbruch verhalten und zu welchen Leistungen sie, ohne sich selbst zu verraten, fähig sind.
