"Louis Douzette/ Whether you take us to the beaches,/ where moon shines silver glint/ on shivering dark waves afar/ whether we rest on the forest glade,/ where your golden rays/ float through the green,/ we are glad to go with you,/o master, with you."
Quote from: Johannes Trojan, chie editor of 'Berliner Wochenzeitschrift "Kladderadatsch" in his article "Ausstellungs-Xenien" from 1888, in: Jörg Scheffelke/Klaus Haese, Louis Douzette. Ein Malerleben in Berlin und Vorpommern, Fischerhude 2004, p. 27.
