Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau: "Mehr als sich ganz geben, kann Keiner [...]". - Starting out painting religious motifs, Fahrenkrog left the Catholic Church in 1900 and joined the "Germanische Glaubens-Gemeinschaft" in 1913, a movement which strongly influenced his further work, which depicts themes of Nordic mythology and nature as well as inner conflict. - Traces of a stamp; postmark on verso slightly showing through. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
