RAW Chemnitz-Hilbersdorf

The Kellerdoscope


A watercolor painting made by Svend Keller (1928 – 2004) in 1948. At this time, Svend Keller was doing an apprenticeship as a graphic artist with his father, Rolf Keller. His life took a different turn though and he did not work as an artist later, but there are some drawings and water color paintings from this time.

The painting is showing the RAW Chemnitz-Hilbersdorf, a repair operation of the “Reichsbahn”, the (East-)German train company. Rof Keller and Svend Keller were living in Chemnitz (later renamed “Karl-Marx-Stadt”, and after 1989 renamed “Chemnitz” again) in Saxony at the time.
