"Der 'Sturm' (Storm), as well as 'Frühling' (Spring), 'Sommertag' (Summer Day) and 'In Wind und Sonne' (In Wind and Sun) counts among those works that show a broad spectrum in terms of sensation and expression and accordingly in the formal arrangement of gestures. What they also have in common is the artist's approach to demonstrate the multifaceted relations between man and nature and their symbolic values." (Hermann Braun, Fritz Klimsch. Eine Dokumentation, Cologne1991, p. 375).
