The mediumistic drawings presented here were all executed in August and September 1922. They come from the hand of a certain Mrs. Brakhan, the wife of a Hamburg architect, who created automatic drawings in the 1920s under spiritualist influence. Of her life and her activity as a "drawing medium", nothing else is known but a brief communication in the issue of February 1925 of the Psychische Studien, where she is mentioned as a "drawing medium of plant-like ornaments".

On the back of the ornamental pencil drawings, the medium's spirit guide "signs" with the words "goodbye" in large characters. Apparently from another hand was noted: "2nd master". These works are typical floral ornament-like structures frequently encountered in mediumistic artistic productions.
