Meyer’s Witch of Endor, 1902
This lovely picture of “Die Hexe von Endor” [The Witch of Endor] is by Kunz Meyer-Waldeck, a German artist who lived to be almost one hundred (b.1859 in Mitau, d.1953 in Neuburg). The printer, Richard Bong, informs up ‘Vervielfäligung und Einzelverkauf dieses kunstblattes ist untersagt’ [duplication and single sale of this art leaf is prohibited]. I bought it as a single leaf, and now I have reproduced it. Just as well I can’t read German.
If you compare the image here, to those that appear in my previous posts on the Witch of Endor (the anonymous image of 1728, Staal’s image of 1853 and Dore’s image of 1866), you will see that it is—by far—the naughtiest of the lot.
