A Genius?

"Sometimes men come by the name of genius in the same way that certain insects come by the name of centipede - not because they have a hundred feet, but because most people can't count above fourteen."
Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799)

  1. The young Friedrich Stowasser, borne 1928 in Vienna, was possibly a good painter, as many children are with their tiny tin box containing about ten different water-coulours.

    Later, to become famous and a man of genius he successfully changed his name in Friedensreich Hundertwasser (that is german and means: hundred waters).
