"I met Volkmann all well and merry and his art makes me outmostly happy; having to compare him, I'd say he is clearly ahead of Hildebrand." Hans von Marées in a letter to his brother Georg from 9 October 1882, quote from: Anette Niethammer, Wie auf den Tag das Abendsonnenlicht. Hans von Marées‘ Meisterschüler Artur Volkmann (1851-1941), Nordhausen 2006, p. 64.
