拍品資料及來源

Georg Scholz served in the First World War from the summer of 1915 until 1918,
and was wounded just a few months before its end. Painted in 1919, the present
work reflects the horror and suffering he had witnessed during the war, as well as
the violence and oppression during the years that followed in struggling Weimar
Germany. No doubt inspired by the quintessential Expressionist image, Edvard
Munch’s The Scream (fig. 1), Nächtlicher Lärm employs expressive, contrasted
colours and sharp, violent shapes to convey the depth of human suffering and terror.

Whilst Munch presents a more universal, existentialist image of the human
condition, Scholz’s Nächtlicher Lärm is deeply rooted in the specific historical and
political reality of the period. The night-time setting metaphorically depicts the
artist’s psychological state, its silence violently pierced by the cry that emanates from
the figure’s mouth and spreads out to embrace the entire space of the composition.
Employing sharp edges and dynamic forms influenced by Futurist art, Scholz
transforms his darkest emotions of fear into a powerful and striking composition.
