Marxy in the Sower - December 1985

The Sower: Vol. 23, No. 4, December 11, 1985, page 2.
From this article I learned that Marxhausen wrote a regular column for the Seward County Independent. That discovery could prove to provide some wonderful insight into his views on art.

Rest in Peace

I was saddened to hear the news today that Reinhold Marxhausen passed away last Saturday, April 24.

Karl Marxhausen visited me Saturday and shared several books made by Reinhold, including a sketchbook from 1945. Today, my family and I paged through his sketchbook, and everyone was discussing not only Reinhold's drawings, but also his thoughtful insights written in his notes. Only a couple hours later, we saw the article from the Lincoln Journal Star.

One of my heroes is with Jesus now. I know his art and his work will continue to be a testament to his faith in the years to come.

As I look through his sketchbook, done when he was about my age, I'm finding all sorts of wonderful insights. Among his class notes, I found this quote he wrote down: "Leonardo Da Vinci - a work of art is the finest, deepest, most significant expression of a rare personality. The painter has in his hands and mind the universe." I'm looking forward to discovering and sharing more of this man's wonderful work.

Here is the article from the Lincoln Journal Star.
