Zille adaptation by Barbara Yelin
Screen print edition from tipBerlin
Heinrich Zille is the forefather of Berlin drawing. Like no one else, he captured on paper the spirit, quirks, misery, and humor of Berliners. His "Milljöh" is legendary is legendary and his pictures capture the pubs, corner shops, dance halls, brothels, living rooms, and street scenes of Berlin.
The contemporary comic artist Barbara Yelin has reinterpreted Zille's sketch of Alexanderplatz (1912) and with her own visual approach, has drawn a bridge between Zille's time and the present: "He [Zille] reached me with his human gaze."
It seems that even almost 100 years after his death, Zille still has something to say to us.
This screen print can also be purchased as part of the Zille collection.
