Georg Knorr, Collection after the Service [Kollekte nach dem Gottesdienst] (1881)
In a style not unlike Norman Rockwell’s, this painting by Georg Knorr combines realism, intimacy, and humor. The worshipper in the center is unable, or disinclined, to add anything to the collection plate – hence the position of his hymnal and the robustness of his singing.
