  • A commissioned suite of medals and medallions created early after Goetz' arrival in Munich.  Karl became good friends with Guido and his wife Antonie Volckamer.

    The Volckamer family had deep roots reaching back into the German Renaissance period.  Goetz, like all other Secessionist medallists, was deeply interested in reviving the artistic quality of the renaissance period, specifically of the 16th c. German artists.
