Eduard Fuchs i Bruno Schulz
In 1913, the Albert Langen publishing house in Munich published two-volume work, Die Weiberherrschaft in der Geschichte der Menschheit (The Rule of Women in the History of Mankind). Compiling 665 reproductions of drawings, prints and paintings from the collection of Eduard Fuchs, this edition shows how the image of female domination and male submission was widespread in Europe from the Renaissance to the early 20th century. Due to some visual parallels, one can assume that Schulz, endowed with good visual memory, freely adapted graphic illustrations created by other authors in his own compositions, especially in those presented in The Book of Idolatry. Perhaps he also drew inspiration from Fuchs’s famous collection?
