In the cathedrals' shadow (1988)
The egg and the bulb point to the architects Busmann + Haberer from Cologne. In Loewels artwork, the egg always stands for the beginning of something new or a birth. The Bulb brings light into things. In this context, a new, modern architectural building is described.
Peter Busmann was an acquaintance Loewels. In the shadow of the cathedral the bust of the art collector and chocolate manufacturer Peter Ludwig appears. The new museum besides the cathedral of cologne was named after him (Museum Ludwig). Today, the picture hangs in the office of the Berlin Architect Dieter Neikes.
