Introduction to the pictures
These pictures offer a brief glimpse into the life of Heinz J. Diill, artist.
They are not intended as a real documentary, but simply as an introduction
to his social life, his home and the historical and cultural beauties of his
Heinz J. Diill was a nature lover, always accompanied by his dogs and cats
and by the birds that came to drink at the fountain he built for them.
Sundown was always 'party time 'with an aperitif for Heinz and breadcrumbs
for the goldfish.
The importance of his surroundings to him is immortalised
in his picture of a great family of flies which he called 'Queen of the Flies'.
We see him at work planting his garden and gathering and burning dry
grass. He was always enchanted by the magic of nature as new flowers
He left the garden wild so that nature could explode in all her own
colours and variety. Even his friends the local nurserymen were won over by
the beauty and colours of the wild flowers.
