With her head slightly raised, the young woman looks us friendly and directly in the eye, holding a jug with a colourful bouquet of tulips in her hands. The wind blows away her skirt as well as the sand at her feet, in the background we can glimpse a dune landscape in bright hues and the churning sea on a nevertheless beautiful summer day.
This scene, which seems to exude an energy all on its own and which almost palpably depicts the mood on the Dutch coast, was painted by Hans von Bartels. He studied in Hamburg and Düsseldorf from 1874 to 1876, and together with his wife, the writer Wanda Groß, he travelled extensively. Numerous study trips took him to Holstein, the island of Rügen, Bornholm, the Curonian Spit, Italy and Holland. He also spent time in Hamburg and Berlin before settling in Munich in 1885, where he was appointed professor of painting at the academy six years later. Hans von Bartels was an honorary member of leading English, Dutch, German, Belgian and Austrian art societies and received numerous awards and medals at international exhibitions.
The Dutch sea and the genre-like scenes of its people continued to be his main motif. What is special about his work is that he places original drawing techniques, such as watercolour and gouache painting, on an equal footing with oil painting. This upgrading of techniques - which is also clearly recognisable in the work offered here - is evident on the one hand in the large formats of his paintings and on the other hand in the very high painterly quality of the execution.
