Landscapes were a common subject for Die Brücke artists, and founding member Erich Heckel’s early scenes often displayed the vivid colors and distorted forms that were characteristic of the group. Here, however, the subdued palette of this wintryvista reflects the maturing of style that occurred for many Die Brücke artists as they sought ways to express a sense of despair in the face of World War I.
