In 1938, Edmund Engelman (1907-2000) realized a photo documentation on Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytic office in Berggasse 19 in Vienna, shortly before Freud fled from the Nazis. Over sixty years later, Robert Longo (born 1953) took these photographs as the basis for a series of charcoal drawings which he created under the title ‘The Freud Cycle’ between 2000 and 2003.
