Birches in the Snow


Last week I had a few spare hours in Hamburg and spent the time in the Kunsthalle.

Amongst the more famous residents, there was also the beautiful Birken im Schnee. Not one of Emil Nolde's most famous works, but incredibly beautiful.

A scene that by most artists would have been painted overwhelmingly in white, is created in Nolde's trademark bright colours while managing not to lose any subtlety; incredible.
