Essay
While in exile in Sweden, Lotte Laserstein examined the nature of her new country of residence. This genre allowed more artistic freedom than her portray commissions. Our picture shows a ladnscape just the way she loved it: "[..] in the evening, when the colors become soft and full and the dislikable green almost disappears."(quote after: Anna-Carola Krausse, Lotte Laserstein. Leben und Werk, Berlin 2006, p. 259)
