"I thank you belatedly for the excellent drawing of K. I have been traveling for months. You have captured K's face at a time when the hunger for war had not yet destroyed it, illuminated by a childish nobility."
The recipient is likely Erwin Otto Krausz (1887-1968), Austrian psychoanalyst, who was also a talented writer of prose and poetry, and an inspired sculptor and painter.
