Arnold Böcklin is one of those artists whose work I found utterly fascinating from the very first viewing. His work is possessed of such a deep emotion and symbolism that it is difficult not to be affected when confronted with one of his paintings…
Der Krieg’
Regarded at the end of the nineteenth century as the leading Germanic painter of his time, Böcklin was deeply influenced by ancient Italian art and painted mainly mythological compositions, filled with gods, centaurs, tritons and sirens, whose predominant themes are the cycles of nature and life, war, and death. Böcklin was also inspired by the secretive, mythological landscapes of the Nazarene painter Heinrich Franz Dreher.
Flora, die Blumen weckend, 1876
