„Mutter Courage“
by Fridel Edelmann

In 1921 - 100 years ago - the young artist Fridel Edelmann drew her mother Courage.

The influence of the “New Objectivity” style is unmistakable. The woman is old and worn out from the war years: As a sutler, she survived the war in the army with her children alone.

Despite everything, she has retained a clear view of the future.

No drawing can better capture the present in the pandemic. President, Emmanuel Macron, has called on France to go to war on the pandemic. Germany, Europe, the whole world are looking for ways out of the catastrophe. The new virus has already cost us an infinite amount of energy. More and more strength will be required of us.

We will win, if we keep a clear view of the future and the courage of Mother Courage.

Bernd Riedle - founder of the internet gallery Dethleffs

 (The figure of the Nordic sutler comes from J.L. Runeberg, Finland. It is not yet known when Fridel Edelmann used the title “Mother Corage”. Bert Brecht used it as the title for his play around 1938/1939. Quote Wikipedia)
