Tuesday. The snow is almost melted and it’s getting warmer. Of course, that doesn’t mean that it’ll stay warm but I really hope it does. I’m dreaming with an early spring.

A couple of days ago we went to a local museum to see an exposition of a German artist called Heinrich Vogeler (1872-1942).

Most of the exposition was about his book illustrations in art nouveau style.
We were not allowed to take pictures so I borrowed some from the internet.

I couldn’t believe the small details in some of the illustrations. You could see all the leaves on the trees and every blade of grass and hair.

To do something like that, you need really good eyes and a lot of patience.

The illustration below is called “FrΓΌhling” (spring). We really like that one. It’s amazing the way he painted the trees (birches) in front of the house with all the little details.

I enjoyed the exposition very much.

  3. Thanks for sharing this, Paola πŸ™‚ It made me look up the artist because I wanted to know what medium he worked with (if they were drawn or etched) and I saw he did a lot of color work, too and found out he worked with a variety of mediums: Charcoal, Colored Pencil, Gouache, Ink, Oil Paint, Pen and Ink Drawing, Watercolor.

    P.S. I hope whatever you were worrying about yesterday was nothing to worry about πŸ™‚

    • I’m still worrying, Donna πŸ™‚
      And the exposition was only about his illustrations, mostly with ink and some with watercolor but I’m not completely sure because it was written in German πŸ˜€
