The presentation of drinking persons in painting is an often recurring theme. The most famous are likely the paintings by Manet, Degas, Picasso and Van Gogh, painted at the end of the 19th Century, when absinthe in artistic circles reached its peak. But even in the current art numerous images of contemporary painters such as H. Breinlinger, J. Ditt or P. Bömmels are created.
