The Age of Anxiety – the 99 paintings
Literature and, above all, poetry have been a deep inspiration for Alexander Polzin’s artworks. In 2002, Polzin created a series of 99 paintings based on Auden’s book length poem, adopting the title Age of Anxiety. The essence of the feeling of anxiety is deeply expressed in this series of paintings.
