This painting was discovered on the reverse side of the Portrait of Marie Castel in 1973 during conservation. The image depicting a windswept tree is full of bright, vibrant colors that were applied to the surface using broad brushstrokes. Although Jawlensky’s art is closely associated with German Expressionism, Landscape bears strong similarity to the brushwork used by Vincent van Gogh in his depictions of cypress trees.
