About the work

The Weyerberg is a 50–meter high sandy elevation located in the region of Teufelsmoor near the village of Worpswede. Here Otto Modersohn depicts the shallow hill in the twilight of the setting sun – in the foreground evening is drawing in – whereas the sky and the background are still bathed in the sun's warm afterglow. His later wife Paula Becker was fulsome in her praise of Modersohn and his evocative landscapes whilst on vacation in Worpswede in 1897. “He had something soft, something sympathetic in his eyes. The landscapes of his which I saw in the exhibition were profoundly atmospheric: the hot, searing August sun or a mysterious, sultry evening. I would like to meet this Modersohn..." (from: Tagebuch Paula Modersohn–Becker, in: Margret Steenfatt: Ich, Paula. Die Lebensgeschichte der Paula Modersohn–Becker, Weinheim: Beltz, 1991, p36).
