Leaves of grass
The picture belongs to a series of portraits Wolff painted under the title "Walden Wall of Fame". The series was created for the exhibition "Walden" in which Wolff dealt with her and our relationship to nature and the pictures we make us of nature.
This portrait shows the American poet Walt Whitman, who is especially famous for his poetry collection "Leaves of Grass", which he changed and extended until his death. He was an early critic of capitalism and war. In his poetry he advocated democracy and a simple life close to nature.
