Franz and Ellen

Franz and Ellen, a devoted and loving team in their studio, Le Moustier, Dordogne France. At the time of this portrait Franz had just completed a detailed drawing of the Moon which had taken many years of observation through a telescope. Imagine, each night watching as the phases grow and then fading in each month and that's when it was cloud free. Nasa had just published the first moon photographs and Franz conceded that theirs was marginally better. Such is life.
