Adolph Menzel – Steel Rolling Mill

The portrayed interaction between man and machine impresses the observer in particular. Massive driving wheels, pistons, rollers, a variety of cables and connections, in between a great number of people manually operating the necessary machines.

The contents of the picture also has the same ratio. A cloudless, light blue sky seemingly expands infinitely high […]
