When the artist married Johanna Friesz, a tailor's daughter, in 1963, it had a profound impact on his artistic work. In the workshop of his parents in law, he saw cotton fabrics, muslin inlays and padded linings, which he immediately recognized as a new material for his works. But though this object, as most of Walther's work, invites touching, the later work groups are predominantly made for contemplation, an understanding of art the artist left behind more than forty years ago. Thus, in his late oeuvre, he has returned to the picture.
