The German Series #7 - Walter Hangarter

German painter Walter Hangarter (1929 - 1995) was a chronicler of the ongoing changes in nature and technology; an artist and a mechanic, caught between the need to make a living and art. 
Walter Hangarter was famous for his paintings of the Bodensee (or Lake Constance), a lake on the Rhine at the northern foot of the Alps. Less known are his paintings of large construction sites, here: Construction of the S-Bahn in Zurich.
