Otto Mueller: Painting "Mother and Kid 2 (Small Version)" (1920)

The lithograph "Mother and Child 2" can also be found under the title "Maschka and Eugen, Small" and was created in 1920, in the year of separation of Mueller and his wife. You can see Maschka holding her nephew, Eugen in her arms. The motive should have arisen because Mueller's former wife was often mistaken for the mother of her nephew.

Otto Muller (1874-1930), one of the most important representatives of the German expressionism, was quiet according to reports of contemporaries, closed almost stubborn person. His close friend Wilhelm Lehmbruck, who was artistically not less than him introverted, 1910 the "bridge” on their own way. His work is similar in many stylistic elements the (Bridge) artists, however, it differs by its insistence on a certain naturalness, his search for the "paradise" in the link between man and nature, which brought him the reputation of an expressionist Romanticist.

His earthy-green landscapes nudes female and the numerous versions of a theme that occupied him throughout his life: The semi-exotic, half Fantastic acting "gypsies" -portraits. His landscapes reveal his autonomy: with structured elements in muted colours and their strictly composition, they are comparable at best the great late works of Paula Modersohn Becker's.
