One Work by Arthur Volkmann


A shady avenue leads towards a yellow villa. The sun breaks through the foliage, so that the differently shaped shadows fall on the house. The artist Eugenie Bandell uses this lighting effect for a contrasting composition of coloured surfaces: pink, lilac and light blue are juxtaposed with yellow and orange. Green is offset with dark blue and black. The artist was often criticised by her contemporaries for her bold choice of colour. Between 1895 and 1917 she nonetheless took part in various exhibitions in Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin and other cities. She is considered to be one of Frankfurt’s most successful female artists.
