Description

Nikolaus Hein (1889 - 1969) was a Luxembourgish German language author. He was a poet, and dedicated his life to teaching and literature.

Nikolaus Hein studied German literature, ancient philology and history in Munich (1909- 1910) and at the Paris-Sorbonne University (1910-1912). He then taught German and literature in Echternach and at the School of Industry and Trade in Luxembourg.

He compiled the German language primer Deutsches Lesebuch für höhere Schulen, later revised and updated by Joseph Groben under the title of "Der Brunnen" (The Well).

The son of a winegrower from Ehnen, throughout his life he was inspired by the Moselle landscape and his father's wine growing profession.


The artist

Pit Wagner is an artist, painter, illustrator, engraver and sculptor, and was born in Luxembourg in 1954.

Using photographs, he created black and white sketches in which he tried to capture the personalities of Hirsch, Speyer and Hein. The choice of colour used for each portrait was not random. Green to evoke vines. Red for feminine success. Blue for spirituality.
