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.
