Penck made drawings for his friends and personal thank you notes for dinners, parties, and sleepovers. The work on offer is a drawing he made in the guestbook “Für Freunde” from his friend Sabine Weitbrecht-Schweinebraden (third from left). He pictured a group of friends, including himself (third from right: “R”) and Jürgen Schweinebraden (left). In the accompanying book “Sein und Wesen – Der unbekannte A. R. Penck” from 2008, this friendship is described in detail.
