Description:
Lot 217: Alexej von Jawlensky, Variation: Vorfrühling Ascona, 1918 Description: Monogrammed 'A.J.' in black lower left, additionally signed, titled and inscribed 'A. Jawlensky N. 120 1918 Vorfrühling' on reverse. In 1914, at the beginning of the First World War, Alexej von Jawlensky was exiled from Germany on account of his nationality, and he moved to St Prex on the shores of Lake Geneva. Here he created the series of his famous "Variationen". The almost invariably identical view from his window on to a park landscape is painted in a journal-like manner. Still the results are not similar to one another and could hardly be more different. "In St Prex I initially wanted to continue working the way I had been working in Munich", writes Jawlensky in his memoirs, "but something inside of me would not allow me to make the colourful, sensual paintings. My soul had become different through extensive suffering, which called for other forms and colours [...]. I began to paint my so-called 'Variationen über ein landschaftliches Thema', which I saw from my window. Those were a few trees, a path and the sky. I began to paint something in order to express with colour what nature was quietly whispering to me. With hard work and under great strain, I gradually found the right colours and forms to express what my spiritual self demanded. Every day I painted these colour variations, always inspired by the given natural ambience, together with my spirit." (cited in: Clemens Weiler, 1970, op. cit., p. 116). Depending on the mood, on the changing light conditions dictated by the season and on the vegetation, the "Variationen" are given a subtitle, such as "Träumerei", "Wenn die Lerche singt", "Zorn" or, as in the present case, "Vorfrühling in Ascona". Vegetal forms soar up steeply, fresh points of colour glow within a mysterious darkness and herald - as though freed from the darkness of winter, cheerfully sprouting - the coming of spring, which is no longer all too distant. United together, park and spiritual landscape find their expression in the present "Variation". 32.5 x 25 cm In good condition, the edges with slight wear and minor localised retouches.
