But she remained connected and loyal to her hometown and the surrounding landscape throughout her life, but especially to the island of Hiddensee, which she visits almost annually as one of the "Malweiber" and later as an established artist. The result is a nearly vast oeuvre. Many anecdotes and stories surround the long, fulfilled life of the charismatic woman, whose works are known far beyond the coast of the Baltic Sea.
The author Dorina Kasten paints a vivid picture of the life and work of "Tante Büchsel", who until 1945 was considered one of the most important painters in Pomerania. The interest in her paintings is unbroken and has been growing immensely since the nineties. Against this background, previously untapped sources, eyewitness-reports, contemporary exhibition reviews and letters are evaluated, rumors are refuted and seemingly established facts are put in the right light.
The book presents numerous reproductions of Elisabeth Büchsel's paintings and works on paper, some of which have never been shown to the public before, and thus makes an important contribution to gradually documenting the artist's works.
