In 2000, during their stay in Dresden and surrounding areas, Jan and his wife Elisabeth came across by accident the Painter’s Way where the early landscapes drawn and painted in such a poignant way by Caspar Davis opened before their eyes in reality. Jan promised with his hand on his heart that he would bring Elizabeth back so that they could walk this wondrous Way. Tragically Elisabeth died and it was impossible to carry out this promise.
Tanzen auf dem Malerwanderweg (Dancing on the Painters Trail)
The journey begins in Dresden on an historic paddle steamer that sails under the bridge ‘The Blue Wonder’ and moors in Pirna. There the leading character discovers the board with an arrow pointing in the direction of Liebethal (Love Valley) and sets off along the wondrous Painter’s Way that finally ends in Schmilka on the Czech border, where garden gnomes and ladies of questionable virtue hold sway. In the last dance she fatally follows a dark path…and meets disaster.
