The landscape is painted in the Art Nouveau style or “Jugendstil”, as it was called in Germany. This international style emerged in the 1880s and lasted until the outbreak of the First World War. Modernism in painting was characterized by a number of features that can be traced here.

The combination of an unusual type of nature with conventional coloring and a style of writing “like a color engraving” creates a feeling of unreality and fantasy, which, by the way, is characteristic of symbolism - the substantive basis of the Art Nouveau style.

Modern. Symbolism.
