奧古斯特·馬克 | 《問候》
- August Macke
The present work also reflects a major theme in Macke’s art – city-dwellers in green spaces that bring the natural world into an urban environment – and the balanced composition is typical of Macke’s lyricism and the sense of harmony between man and nature that he evokes in his work. Barry Herbert comments: ‘Macke’s work was a constant reaffirmation of his unaffected delight in this earthly paradise of which he found himself to be a part, and in his paintings he recorded its small, apparently insignificant, moments of pleasure with a penetration and tender eye for the underlying currents of feeling that made them memorable […]. In them it is as if all worldly cares have been temporarily laid aside, self-consciousness has been forgotten, and these men and women once again experience something like their former state of innocence’ (B. Herbert, German Expressionism. Die Brücke and Der Blaue Reiter, London, 1983, pp. 148-149).
