About the Work

Sixteenth-century landscape painting has Lucas van Valckenborch to thank for the development of groundbreaking new picture types – the forest scene and, above all, the winter landscape. Whereas the latter had previously been conceivable only as part of a cycle of the four seasons, Van Valckenborch’s wintry views of Antwerp are pictorial inventions in their own right. Presumably commissioned by the Malpaerts – a local silk-dealing family – the Städel version is charming by virtue of its narrative details and especially its convincing representation of falling snow.

  • Gastkommentar: Dirk Notz im Städel Museum
    Was sieht ein Klimaforscher in den Kunstwerken der Städel Sammlung? In dieser Reihe eröffnet Dirk Notz (Forschungsgruppenleiter am Max-Planck-Institut für Meteorologie, Hamburg) individuelle Sichtweisen auf die Werke des Städel Museums. Er erinnert mit der Betrachtung von Lucas van Valckenborchs "Winterlandschaften" an Klimaschwankungen in der Vergangenheit und führt am Beispiel von Ernst Ludwig Kirchners "Westhafen" den menschlichen Einfluss am Klimawandel vor Augen.
