    Julius von Klever (Russian, 1850 -1924)

    Erlkönig, 1887

    "Father, do you not see the King of the Alder Trees?
    The King with his crown and tail?”
    “My dear son, it is just a streak of mist.”

    - Goethe (excerpt, my translation), 1782

    “Willst, feiner Knabe, du mit mir gehen?
    Meine Töchter sollen dich warten schön;
    Meine Töchter führen den nächtlichen Reihn,
    Und wiegen und tanzen und singen dich ein.”

    Robert Motherwell - The Open series

    "The Open series preoccupied Motherwell from 1967 until the last years of his life. 

    Open was a personal response to the colorfield paintings made by younger abstract painters in the ’60s.

    Motherwell’s abstracts are his equivalents to the views through open windows favored by European painters such as Matisse as metaphors for the relationship between the interior world of the emotions and the external world of the senses.”
