Robert Sterl spent many years investigating the art of lithography. Given the extreme sensitivity of the printed works to light, only a few have been included in the museum’s permanent exhibition. Their placement in the house’s foyer is most likely attributable to Helene Sterl. The first lithographs were created during the summers Robert Sterl resided in Hesse and depict motifs from country life. In Dresden, in contrast, it was the world of music that inspired Sterl to produce his printed works. As a result, he created engaging renderings of his friend, the Dresden conductor Ernst von Schuch (1846 – 1914), and von Schuch’s orchestra.
