In his quest for the expressiveness of the human face Jawlensky needed several intermediate stages and eventually attained the Meditations which would crown his later period of creation. Impaired by illness and often in pain, as he reported, he painted the small Meditations in a sort of trance, free from the troubles of existence. They are variations of an original type, in a sense of a transcendental expansion they become new and eternal creations. Relying on the proven and tested form, the colors’ magic comes to his aid in the visualization of the stages of immersion. It is a deeply religious art that reaches far beyond merely visual aspects.
