ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF THIS ARTICLE:
The Phantasten Community mourns one of its greats. The Viennese painter and graphic artist Wolfgang Hutter (13 December 1928) passed away on September 26, 2014. Hutter was a founding member of the Art Club and one of the main representatives of the famous Vienna School of Fantastic Realism. His magical canvasses are worked out to the smallest detail and reveal his sensitive handwriting. Hutter's art encompasses also tapestries and mosaics such as the mosaic floor in the Theater an der Wien. For three decades, Wolfgang Hutter worked as a professor at the Vienna University of Applied Arts. In 1977 he received the Prize of the City of Vienna for Visual Arts, 2011 and he was honored with the Golden Medal for Service to the City of Vienna. Let's hope that the death of Wolfgang Hutter is no longer ignored in the public media. Such a large and internationally important Austrian artist and his family should in any case be granted the final tribute in the form of an honoring obituary. Many thanks to Gerhard Habarta without whom the sad news of the death of Wolfgang Hutter and this little obituary would not exist.

Jim Penton was Professor at the Department of Religious Studies. Perhaps not many know that he was of Metis heritage, and also involved in the Metis community in Lethbridge, Alberta.
âBack in the days when he wrote that book (I was a student at the University of Lethbridge, late Seventies to early Eighties), I contributed the illustration in the first edition for him (the Truth Lightning hitting the watchtower, seen above). That illustration is not in the third edition, but another one is, see below.
âIn the meantime, a third edition has been published

How metal is Hieronymus Bosch's "The Garden of Earthly Delights"? Here's a fantasy metal version of the 500 Year Old Butt Song from Hell, based on the recent transcription of the music written on some guy's butt.
Thanks to the dedicated transcription that required some art and music history understanding (from Dangerous Minds):
