"Petal". Original title
Bouquet in a blue Vase, flanked by a donkey figure and a wind-up tin frog. The sheet belongs to a series of works of the 2. Half of the 50s resulting stoppage of the Expressionist, which is closely associated with the Blaue Reiter and Wassily Kandinsky life. Life, she devoted herself to still life with flowers, often combined with toys and other objects. In this late work of 1959, she expressed her the immense joy of life. Characteristic of the renouncement of plasticity and three-dimensionality, the mostly visible image reason is; the stylized, powerful contoured objects are filled with strong bright lines and surfaces.
