Two polaroid photos - one showing watercolour paints and the other showing people walking down a spiral staircase - and several cards with text quotes sit on top of a green background with pink ribbon. Type reads: "May 10th 1771: I am so happy my dearest, so fully absorbed in the feeling of this calm presence", "that my art is suffering. I couldn't draw now, not one stroke", "and yet I have never been a greater painter than in these moments". The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
