Caroline von Wolzüge (née von Lengefeld)

Schriftstellerin︱ Writer

Ich besuchte meines Mannes Büchersammlung. Mein lebhafter Sinn faßte und verband schnell, und bald zog mich das Interesse meiner eignen Neugier weiter fort. […] Eben so entfaltete sich ein Talent zur bildenden Kunst in mir, das meinem Geschmak Sicherheit und Reinheit gab.

Caroline von Wolzüge, aus ihrem Roman “Agnes von Lilien”, Der Horen 1793, S. 251

I visited my husband’s collection of books. My vivid imagination understood and made connections quickly and soon the interests of my own curiosity pushed me further. […] Likewise, a talent for fine art unfolded in me which gave my tastes confidence and purity.

Caroline von Wolzüge, from her novel “Agnes von Lilien”, Der Horen 1793, p. 251
