A dialogue between non-Western and Western cultures on anthropological, sociopolitical, and environmental as well as economics-related and day-to-day questions


Otto Modersohn

Landschaften der Stille
“His landscapes […] express deep, deep emotions.” Paula Becker, 1898
For painter Otto Modersohn, ‘simplicity’ and ‘integrity‘ were key, as was the portrayal of nature, which formed the focus of his work. The various twists and turns of life are reflected in his artistic signature, which ranges from expressive intensity and a build-up of colour, through rugged motifs with a dark palette to a dematerialised transparency in well-balanced compositions.
Modersohn’s silent landscapes provide striking insights through the artist’s eyes into a reality that is seen but is primarily sensed.
