The Sad Legend of Felix Nacht & His Hidden Masterpieces

 ......................................................................................................................

During the Spring of 2024, the Fenwood Bureau of Artifacts unexpectedly found a unique estate sale in nearby Eastbury, New York. There, we met a woman who lived in the house with her elderly mother (recently deceased) and was now selling the house and all its contents. When we asked her if she had any antiques for sale, she escorted us to a dilapidated shed on the property. We were amazed to discover a treasure trove of bizarre paintings stacked inside, which she claimed were "utterly worthless" to her.

................

The woman told us the sad story of her grandfather, Felix Nacht, a shy artist who immigrated from Germany to America in 1919. Once here, he found work as a mail clerk in an insurance company and dreamed of becoming a respected artist one day. Sadly, he struggled with this idea because he always felt his work wasn't good enough and often thought of giving it up.

Each long day, Felix worked his mundane job and then used the night to unleash his creativity. The deeper he explored his prolific imagination, the more he felt his ideas originated from another realm of reality. Sadly, he never had the confidence to show his art to anyone and worked for years in secrecy. During this time, he fell madly in love with a woman named Marta Bachner, who he portrayed in many of his artworks.

Unfortunately, Marta was cruel and didn't love him the same way, but used their relationship to fulfill her need to belittle people and make herself feel important. She often ridiculed Felix and his art, calling him a "Weird little man with even weirder ideas", and proclaimed he would never amount to anything more than a lowly clerk. Regardless, Felix loved Marta with all his heart, and for reasons unknown, she was his muse.

After toiling for decades in obscurity, Marta's nasty words finally penetrated Felix's heart.  Around 1938, he abandoned his art and locked the door to his studio. He quickly descended into depression and madness, which lasted until his untimely death in 1946.

..............

After her story, the woman asked us if we still wanted this "stuff", if not, it was going straight into the trash. She sold us the entire collection for $200.

....................

Along with his paintings, we also acquired Felix's extensive journals and sketchbooks. Inside, we discovered his written desires to use his art to channel higher planes of consciousness. With this in mind, we here at Fenwood have compiled his life's work into a fascinating oracle that reads like a dream.
