Karl Hagemeister

Circa 1915

Oil on canvas 75 x 110 cm Framed. Signed 'KHagemeister' lower right. - Colours still fresh. Few isolated retouches. Pastose white areas partly with slight craqueleur.

Between 1908 and 1915, Lohme on the island of Rügen was the centre of Karl Hagemeister's artistic career. He depicted the beach, rocky coastline and the sea around this small town in numerous drawings, pastels and paintings. Hagemeister dedicated an entire series of paintings to the waves, showing them in various light and weather conditions. The present work uses just a few broad brushstrokes to illustrate the dynamic, unrestrained power of the sea, depicting clear turquoise water and the white frothing sea foam in an utmost lively manner.
