This illustration is based on the Kurt Schwitters fairy tale, the Man with the Glass Nose. The story is about a man who is able to tell what a person is thinking by their smell. Although he is constantly being complemented for his nose, what he really smells contradicts this; it stinks. German born Schwitters wrote this tale, based on his own experiences, while seeking refuge in England at the beginning of the Second World War.In this work I am attempting to highlight the feelings of isolation and loneliness Schwitters felt when plunged into an over polite society.
