War, flight, loss of his childhood home, loss of friends, his homeland - all this sounds like anything but being fortunate. However, through a magic of being, all this misfortune turned into Beck's happiness. Together with his beloved wife Gisela, he found freedom, peace, fulfilment of life and a new home in one of the most beautiful places in the world. And at the centre of this finding of fortune is his great creative life's work, the fruit and fulfilment of a unique life for art.
