I, London, 1991, no. 75, illustrated in color p. 95 Mixed Pickles is a prime example of Jawlensky's facility for transforming a traditional subject into a mode of pure self-expression. He wrote in a letter of 1908: “I understood that I must not paint that which I saw, not even that which I felt, but only that which lived within me. Metaphorically speaking it is thus: I felt within me, within my breast, an organ (as in a church), and I had to make that organ play. And nature, which was before me, only prompted me. And that was the key which unlocked this organ and made it play. At first it was difficult. But gradually I was able to find easily, with color and form, that which was in my soul. I painted very many pictures... They are songs without words” (quoted in James T. Demetrion, Alexej Jawlensky (exhibition catalogue), Pasadena Art Museum, Pasadena, 1964, p. 13). Canvas is unlined. Colors are bright and fresh and their is a rich layer of impasto that is well preserved. Some slight undulation to the canvas, especially at upper left and a horizontal raise to the canvas two inches below top, possibly evidence of an old stretcher bar. Some minor frame abrasion around the extreme perimeter. Under UV light a stroke of inpainting is visible near upper right corner at extreme right edge and an area of pooling varnish at lower right is visible. Some original pigments fluoresce but no other inpainting is apparent. This work is in generally very good condition.
