Inspired by the works of Richard Wagner as well as by Goethe's "Faust", Hendrich created monumental paintings with themes from German and Norse mythology, as well as several "art halls" including the "Sagenhalle" in Schreiberhau and the "Walpurgishalle" in Thale.

A few small ink spots. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
