LITERATURE: Galerie Kornfeld, Bern, June 20, 1997, lot 98.
The way he groups blossoms and flowers, how he uses light and dark, how he manages to combine tenderness and strength, how he captures naturalness and yet creates a picture from the whole, a true picture, is nothing but virtuoso. Who saw his poppy and sunflower pictures will have a hard time indulging in those of other artists. Light, color and beauty is what he fully captured.
Ada in a letter to Hans Fehr, 1927
