The Gunter born 1927 in Danzig, grass is regarded as a prominent representative of German literature. In addition, he made a name as a sculptor, painter and printmaker. Not without its own irony, he said of himself: "As an artist, I am a trained as a writer of unskilled artists."

After Steinmetz Education Grass studied sculpture at the Academy in 1948 to 49 and 1953, at the Dusseldorf Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin. As a writer Grass 1959 with the first part of the so-called "Danzig Trilogy", "The Tin Drum", known.

"I guess the artist, and the sculptor Gunter extraordinarily grass. What he produced for half a century, I like it very much and almost always." (Marcel Reich-Ranicki)

"Grass' secret lies in the precarious and unique balance that he to produce has managed between its anarchic imagination and his superior wisdom of art." (Hans Magnus Enzensberger)
