“Now what made Koester make such intense use of the pastel pen? Is their a special magic in them? […] The artist experiments with this technique, always ready to discover new things […], and to explore the means of paintings. We often admire the birght blue pastels in his painitngs in combination with the ducks' white plumage.”
