Der kranke Nietzsche (The Ill Nietzsche)[1] is the title of a photoseries and an engraving by Hans Olde of Friedrich Nietzsche, taken towards the end of Nietzsche's life between June and August 1899.

Most of these photos are available from Wikimedia[2].

From one of these photos, Olde produced a drawing, which was in turn engraved[3].

This engraving first appeared in the German magazine "Pan", no. 4 of the fifth year (1899/1900).

The original photos ar in the Goethe- und Schiller-Archiv, Weimar, signature GSA 101/37.

Videos[4] purporting to be from the same time period and location are available elsewhere on the web, e.g. YouTube, normally under the title "Nietzsche's Last Days". The footage in question is mostly assumed to be computer edited, spliced together from these images with various animation techniques and should not be considered authoritative.
