Rose Hedge

Wilhelm Trübner German

Not on view

This is one of a group of paintings depicting roses growing along a fence at the Villa Knorr on the western shore of Lake Starnberg near Munich, a popular vacation spot which Trübner visited in the summer of 1909. Known early in his career for his trenchant depictions of laborers and the middle class, by this date Trübner had embraced landscape painting, and in particular views of gardens, which offered carefully cultivated topography and foliage that delighted his eye. He pared this view down to its essential elements of line and color, accented by pink and red blooms.
