More about this artwork
The Persian poet Hafiz (c. 1319 – c. 1389) is famous for his ghazals celebrating wine, love and the beauty of nature. Feuerbach shows him as a pleasure-seaker, seated by a well next to roses. Enthusiasm for Hafiz was sparked in Germany by Goethe’s West-östlicher Divan and prompted Friedrich Rückert, August von Platen and other poets to translate his works or render them freely in their own words.
