Captured much of the essence of Berlin which remains still today- for example Nollendorfplatz- the same today.
In the first of these two articles about the life and work of the German Post-Impressionist painter Lesser Ury (1861–1931), I looked at his paintings up to 1903.
Painted sometime during the first decade of the twentieth century, Ury’s Berlin Street Scene with Horse-Drawn Cabs closes in on his formula for success. Although he retains considerable detail in the trees and horse-drawn cabs, the wet road now looks like a real water surface, with its reflections perfect. The dull daylight makes it hard to simplify the image any further, though.
His other landscapes of this period were also becoming more distinctive and memorable.
