August Natterer (1868-1933), "Miracle Shepherd II" "At 38 [Natterer] began to suffer from increasing restlessness, insomnia and fatigue. His suffering soon culminated in a psychotic attack in which the whole world was explained to him in the space of half an hour via 15,000 pictures. It was this material which he tried to retain to in his works, which were created during his 26 years in psychiatric institution. He died in 1933."
