Herbstgedanken - Original Photo-Gravure Hand Watercolored - 1886

1886

About

Herbstgedanken, i.e. "Autumn thoughts", is a wonderful hand-watercolored photo-gravure on cardboard realized in 1886 by the Symbolist German artist Arnold Böcklin (Basel, 1827 - S. Domenico in Fiesole, 1901), published by Bruckmann in Munich. In excellent conditions, except for minimum defects on the edges (some light abrasions of color). These defects do not affect the beauty of the image. This Modern artwork of small dimensions yet of high qualitative finesse, representing a woman closed in herself in a meditative state and reflecting her figure on the river water, has two levels of interpretations. It has to be read in a Symbolist key. The water of the river visually represents the woman's contemplative mood with its reflection of her elegant and long white dress. The yellow flowers floating on the water and dotting the grass, as well as the yellowing leaves of the trees, add a melancholic aura to this artwork titled Herbstgedanken, which means "Autumn thoughts". The same color (yellow) also appears on the decorative motif at the bottom of the woman's cloak, pleasantly in contrast with the rest of the shiny blue attire. All these symbolic details reinforce the thesis that the woman is deeply connected with Nature. She is lost in her autumnal thoughts in a typical enfolding feminine posture: her blue cloak wraps her, while her clasped hands reach up to touch her face. The poignancy of the moment, captured by Bocklin's wise touch, is conveyed by the woman's state of contemplation in front of Nature. Another specimen is preserved at the Kunsthaus in Zurich. This object is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any object in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
