few days later, when results were posted, I found myself at
the top of the list of those accepted into the Academy. In
professor Hausner's studio, I had a room about 8 meters square
to work in. I hung my paintings on the wall and started to
work. The professor came to the academy only twice a month
and then for only a few hours. Hausner took me to the Kunst
Historiche Museum to show me the works of Albrecht Dürer.
I loved this museum and usually went three times a week and
would stay in the study hall to draw from models in plaster.
I learned a lot of new techniques, materials and their application.
