Feliks Topolski: artist notes on 'Memoir of the Century' - 13 Nuremberg
1946, the Nuremberg Trial - bench of the accused. Goering held most of my attention, hence, having drawn him several times, he is painted here in three versions. Ribbentrop was absent.
In the same year H.G. Wells dies (he posed for me shortly before). Marriage and two children mark the arrival of peace.
