Hermann Hesse

I bought this portrait of Hermann Hesse (one of my favourit writers) painted by Akira Beard. I admire Akira´s craft, his loose but precise paint stokes applied with the easyness and precision of a zen master. In my late teens I read most of Hermann Hesse´s books: Narcissus and Goldmund, The Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, Peter Camenzind, The Glass Bead Game, Demian, Journey to the East, as well as most of his short stories and essays.
