About the work

Siegward Sprotte liked to spontaneously paint flowers from his garden on Sylt. This bouquet, which he entitled "Pentecost”, may also have originated in this way. A colourful sonority of blooms in gouache on handmade paper - the colourful blossoms and leaves reveal themselves against the white of the paper, shifted slightly to the left from the central axis: peony and larkspur, yellow tulips, a rose, many buds and blooms in various shades of red, a little bit of fresh, vernal green at the lower end of the bouquet. The artist records all of this in generously applied, loosely juxtaposed blotches of colour that can’t deny their tendency toward a free painting, independent of the motif.
Like so often, the painter wanders almost as if sleepwalking along the thin line between reality and image carrier, between imitation of nature and pure, non-representational painting, between emptiness and abundance, which lends the art of Siegward Sprotte its special quality.
