Pictures for Ukraine: Charity auction

“We want to help. But what can we do? Little to nothing. We only have our pictures. It’s not much, but this is what we can contribute: collect donations and give away our favorite pictures,” says Barbara Yelin, illustrator, author, and co-organizer of the charity auction “Pictures for Ukraine”.

From April 6 to 13, 2022, and in cooperation with the Literaturhaus Munich, eleven renowned Munich and Augsburg illustrators are donating one of their originals to support the people of Ukraine. Quint Buchholz’s picture “Man on the Water” is also part of the auction.

100% of the proceeds will go to the people of Ukraine.

Those who are interested can find further information, look at the pictures, follow the bidding process, and place bids on the website of the Literaturhaus Munich.

Quint Buchholz on the “Culture Stage”

In times of cancelled cultural events the Bavarian Broadcasting Service (Bayerischer Rundfunk) is communicating in different ways with those hungry for culture. On the newly created website “Culture Stage”, much is offered to entertain, inform and give incentive for reflection.

Right now, three pictures out of the newest books by Quint Buchholz are exhibited there, pictures from The Ocean Book (Insel-Bücherei) and To Everything There is a Season (Hanser). Three wonderful little texts, meditations on time and quietness by Niels Beintker, form the commentary.

It is definitely worth dropping by and having a little look around!
