拍品資料及來源

Painted in 1912, Bunter Berg im Tal bei Oberstdorf is a vibrant and powerful composition, and is a prime example of the Expressionist style which Jawlensky pioneered with the Blaue Reiter group. Made up of patches of strong, vibrant colour delineated in bold black contours, this landscape depicts hills and mountains that appear to overlap one another, leading the viewer’s eye from the foreground to the top of the composition. The range of intense blue, pink and orange tones is typical of Jawlensky’s Expressionist palette and characterised his paintings of this period. The present work, alongside several other dramatic mountainous landscapes (fig. 1), was painted near Oberstdorf, a small town in the Bavarian Alps where Jawlensky stayed in the second half of 1912 with his family and Marianne von Werefkin.

In its use of colour and style of execution, the present work draws on a rich tradition of modernist painting, including the art of, among others, Van Gogh, Matisse and Van Dongen. The spontaneous brushstrokes and the juxtaposition of bright and cool tones reflect the influence of Van Gogh and Cézanne. In 1905 Jawlensky’s works were exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in Paris alongside those of the Fauve artists, who were to play the most important role in the development of Jawlensky’s style in the following years. His abandonment of representational use of colour in favour of a more spontaneous, expressive one is strongly reminiscent of Matisse’s landscapes from his Fauve period. Bunter Berg im Tal bei Oberstdorf represents a synthesis of these various artistic influences into a personal and unique pictorial language. As Volker Rattemeyer writes: ‘The term ‘synthesis’ provides an important key to our understanding of Jawlensky’s works. With reference to Gauguin’s ‘Cloisonnism’, Jawlensky also began to outline his coloured forms, most frequently in black. The landscapes of the Murnau period are characterized as a whole by an intense involvement with surface, pictorial area and the effects of colour. Contours that seem to vibrate as well as frequent severe cropping of pictorial motifs provide evidence of Jawlenky’s independent position in the artistic world at the time. The tendencies rooted in the landscapes from the Murnau period were to be intensified in the years that followed. Under the stimulations gathered on a summer holiday in Prerow on the Baltic sea (1911) and on a trip to Paris in the autumn, during which he met van Dongen and saw Matisse again, and during a six-month stay in Oberstdorf the following year, Jawlensky’s works after 1911 gained in intensity of their colouration… as well as a heightened power of expression’ (V. Rattemeyer, Alexej von Jawlensky (exhibition catalogue), Museum Wiesbaden, Wiesbaden, 1991, pp. 14-15).
