Writers who make art

Mum subscribes to Modern Painters magazine and passes them on to me once she's read them. An article in the February 2007 issue describes an exhibition at the Pinaakothek Der Modern, Munich, called 'The Poetry of Architecture'. It's about writers and poets who create fictitious architecture, and, in turn architects who are influenced by the work of writers. It showcases sketches, film, paintings and book illustrations by writers such as Flaubert, Tolkien, Kafka, Grass and many more.
The above image is by the writer Anna Seghers called 'Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves', 1925.
