Marianne Werefkin Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1860 - d. 1938

Marianne von Werefkin, born Marianna Wladimirowna Werewkina (10 September [O.S. 29 August] 1860 – 6 February 1938), was a Russian-German-Swiss Expressionist painter.

Marianne von Werefkin was born in the Russian town of Tula as the daughter of the commander of the Ekaterinaburg Regiment. She had her first private academic drawing lessons at the age of fourteen. In 1880, she became a student of Ilya Repin, the most important painter of Russian Realism. Her progress was dealt a setback by a hunting accident in 1888 in which she accidentally shot her right hand which remained crippled after a lengthy period of recovery. By practicing persistently she finally managed to use drawing and painting instruments with her right hand again.

In 1892 she met Alexej von Jawlensky, who desired to be her protégé, and in 1896 she, Jawlensky, and their servant moved to Munich. Werefkin studied with other Russians in Munich at an art school directed by the Slovenian Anton Ažbè.[1]

For the sake of Jawlensky's painting, Werefkin interrupted her painting for almost ten years.

She began painting again in 1906. In 1907 she created her first expressionist works; in these she followed Paul Gauguin's and Louis Anquetin's style of "surface painting", while also showing the influence of Edvard Munch. She and Jawlensky spent in 1908 several periods working with Kandinsky and Münter after their discovery of the picturesque rural town of Murnau near Munich, where Gabriele Münter owned a house. The four artists frequently painted together in open air in and around Murnau.

At her Munich apartment, Werefkin initiated a Salon which soon became a center of lively artistic exchange between members of the German and Russian avant-garde who would later be founders of the Neue Künstlervereinigung München (New Association of Artists in Munich, NKVM) and Blaue Reiter.[1] The NKVM, founded in 1909, became a forum of exhibitions and programming. At the first touring exhibition of NKVM, Werefkin exhibited Washerwomen (1909) and The Storm (1907). The simplified form and psychological content of works relate to the sources Werefkin admired at this time including the artist Paul Gauguin, Japanese woodcuts and the expressive works of the Nabis in France.[2]

Werefkin also founded the “Lukasbruderschaft” of which also Kandinsky was a member.[3]

The two principals of Blaue Reiter, Kandinsky and Marc, met each other at Werefkin and Jawlensky's home on New Year's Eve in 1911.[1] After a few years Wassily Kandinsky and Franz Marc distanced themselves from NKVM and formed the Der Blaue Reiter (Blue Rider). The group was founded by a number of Russian emigrants, including Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky and a number of native German artists, such as Franz Marc, August Macke and Gabriele Münter. Werefkin began exhibiting together with Blaue Reiter in 1913.

At the outbreak of the First World War, Werefkin and Jawlensky immigrated to Switzerland, near Geneva. They later moved to Zurich. By 1918, they had separated, and Werefkin moved alone to Ascona, on Lago Maggiore where she painted many colorful, landscapes in an expressionist style. In 1924 she founded the artist group "Großer Bär" (i.e., Big Bear, Ursa Major).

In her later years, she painted posters. Her friends "Carmen" and "Diego Hagmann" protected her from poverty.

Marianne von Werefkin died in Ascona on 6 February 1938. She was buried in the Russian graveyard in Ascona.

        Apr. 30, 2022

        Marianne von Werefkin (Tula 1860 - 1938 Ascona) - o.T. (Berge am Lago Maggiore bei Ascona).

        Est: -

        Marianne von Werefkin (Tula 1860 - 1938 Ascona) o.T. (Berge am Lago Maggiore bei Ascona). Farbige Kreiden u. Pinsel in Tusche auf PM Fabriano Bütten. Um 1917. 25 x 33,8 cm, im Passepartout freigestellt. Unter Glas gerahmt. Mit einer Expertise von Dr. Bernd Fäthke vom Werefkin-Archiv-Wiesbaden vom 01. Mai 1996. - Provenienz: Erben von Anita Brockmann, einer Freundin Werefkins in Ascona. - Werefkin erhielt als Tochter eines Generals zehn Jahre lang Privatunterricht von dem berühmten realistischen Maler Ilja Repin, durch den sie 1892 Alexej Jawlensky kennenlernte. Beide arbeiteten fortan zusammen. 1896 übersiedelten sie nach München, eine Zeit, in der Werefkin fast zehn Jahre lang die Malerei ruhen ließ, um sich der Förderung von Jawlenskys Talent zu widmen. Während eines fast einjährigen Aufenthalts in Paris und Südfrankreich 1905/06 begann Werefkin erneut zu malen. In ihren neuen Bildern brach sie mit der naturalistischen Malweise ihrer russischen Zeit und nahm Einflüsse des Symbolismus, von Edvard Munch und Ferdinand Hodler, in ihr Werk auf. "Eine eigenwillige Farb- und Formensprache bildet sich heraus, die von der Ikonografie menschlicher Gefühlssituationen und Bedingtheiten geprägt wird." (Lenbachhaus.de) - Zurück in Deutschland arbeiteten Jawlensky, Werefkin, Kandinsky und Münter zusammen in Murnau, gründeten die "Neue Künstlervereinigung München" und später den "Blauen Reiter". Bei Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs verlor Werefkin große Teile ihres Vermögens und floh mit Jawlensky, Helene Nesnakomoff und deren gemeinsamen Sohn Andreas in die Schweiz. Sie mieteten sich zunächst in St. Prex am Genfer See ein, 1917 in Zürich, ab 1918 in Ascona. Hier kam es 1921 zur endgültigen Trennung zwischen Jawlensky und Werefkin, die bis zu ihrem Tod 1938 in Ascona lebte und arbeitete und dort mit den Vorbesitzern vorliegender Arbeit, der Familie Brockmann, befreundet war. - In Ascona entwickelte sich Werefkins Kunst in zwei Richtungen: eine eher mystische und visionäre und eine, die menschliche und soziale Fragen behandelte. Gerade erst in der Schweiz und in ihrem neuen Zuhause angekommen erarbeitet sie sich ihr Umfeld. Für die vorliegende Arbeit hat sie sich in die Einsamkeit der Berge um Ascona zurückgezogen und dort eine eigene faszinierende Sicht auf ihre Umgebung entdeckt. Die massiven Berghänge, in Rot und Blau getaucht, münden schwunghaft direkt in den See. Dahinter erheben sich weiße, zackige Berggipfel, die in den tiefblauen Himmel ragen. Der dunkle See, ein windgepeitschter Baum im Vordergrund und ein beinahe in Seenot gebrachtes Segelboot verdeutlichen die machtvolle Gewalt der Natur vor Ort, ein Platz, der Werefkins neue Heimat werden und sie fortan in ihren Werken inspirieren sollte.

Sie fanden in Saint-Prex im Gut der Familie Adèle Delarageaz Zuflucht. Eine Schwester von Adèle lebte schon vor 1914 in Russland und es kann angenommen werden, dass durch sie die Bekanntschaft zu den Flüchtenden bestand. Das vorliegende Werk ist während des Aufenthaltes am Genfersee entstanden, wohl anlässlich eines Ausfluges nach Aigle. Die eindrückliche Burganlage ist oberhalb des Rebberges dargestellt. Im September/Oktober 1917 zogen Werefkin, Jawlensky und Familie nach Zürich, bevor sie 1918 in das Castello nach Ascona am Lago Maggiore übersiedelten Die frühere Besitzerin des vorliegenden Werkes, die auch in Ascona wohnhafte Martha Steffen, entwickelte ab ca. 1925 eine enge Beziehung zur Künstlerin und erwarb immer wieder Werke, um sie in einer Zeit besonders grosser finanzieller Not zu unterstützen Marianne von Werefkin, together with her partner Alexej von Jawlensky, had to emigrate from Munich at the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. They found refuge in Saint-Prex in the estate of the Adèle Delarageaz family. One of Adèle's sisters had already lived in Russia before 1914 and it can be assumed that through her they became acquainted with the fugitives. The present work was written during her stay on Lake Geneva, probably on the occasion of an excursion to Aigle. The impressive castle complex is depicted above the vineyard. In September/October 1917 Werefkin, Jawlensky and their family moved to Zurich before moving to the Castello in Ascona on Lake Maggiore in 1918 The former owner of the present work, Martha Steffen, who also lived in Ascona, developed a close relationship with the artist from around 1925 and repeatedly acquired works to support her at a time of particularly great financial need Erwartete Ausrufzeit / Estimated Auction Time of Lot (+/- 30min) 17.

        Marianne von Werefkin, Akt mit Armen hinter dem Kopf. Verso: Akt (each Helene Nesnakomoff), 1909

        Est: €12,000 - €14,000

        Unsigned. With a certificate by Bernd Fäthke, Wiesbaden, dated 25 May 2019 Helene Nesnakomoff (1886-1965), whom Marianne von Werefkin has depicted here twice, was the artist's housekeeper and her only nude model. She had already entered the household of the wealthy von Werefkin family in Lithuania in 1895; that is where Alexei von Jawlensky, who had been Marianne von Werefkin's lover since 1892, met Helene during a visit. Werefkin and Jawlensky moved to Munich one year later, and Helene accompanied the couple as their personal servant. A ménage à trois developed between them, and in 1902 a son was born to Jawlensky and Helene. The two married in Wiesbaden in 1922 after the separation from Werefkin. Helene often posed as a model for both artists, and various portraits of her exist. In these two works the artist has used quick, confident strokes to draw the woman to whom she was tied in such an explosive manner. Helene's seemingly Japanese hairstyle featuring a bun can be recognised in the gouache on the recto of the sheet: it may illustrate Werefkin's interest in Japanese art, which she shared with many fellow artists.

        Marianne von Werefkin, Akt mit Armen hinter dem Kopf. Verso: Akt (each Helene Nesnakomoff), 1909

        Est: €15,000 - €20,000

        Unsigned. With a certificate by Bernd Fäthke, Wiesbaden, dated 25 May 2019 Helene Nesnakomoff (1886-1965), whom Marianne von Werefkin has depicted here in not just one but two lascivious poses, was the artist's housekeeper and her only nude model. She had already entered the household of the wealthy von Werefkin family in Lithuania in 1895, at the age of nine; that is where Alexei von Jawlensky, who had been Marianne von Werefkin's lover since 1892, met Helene during a visit. Werefkin and Jawlensky moved to Munich one year later, and Helene accompanied the couple as their personal servant. A ménage à trois developed between them, and in 1902 a son was born to Jawlensky and Helene. The two married in Wiesbaden in 1922 after the separation from Werefkin. Helene often posed as a model for both artists, and various portraits of her exist. Interestingly, however, she never served among Jawlensky's numerous nude models. In these two works the artist has used quick, confident strokes to draw the woman to whom she was tied in such an explosive manner. Helene's seemingly Japanese hairstyle featuring a bun can be recognised in the gouache on the recto of the sheet: it may illustrate Werefkin's interest in Japanese art, which she shared with many fellow artists. Together with Jawlensky, she began collecting Japanese woodcuts around 1909; inspiration gathered by both of them from Far Eastern styles is often present in their work.

        Est: €90,000 - €100,000

        Unsigned. Verso with old information on the artist and the sitter by an unknown hand.The image of Rosalia Leiß is not only an impressive portrait but also a characteristic and captivating work by the Russian artist Marianne von Werefkin, co-founder of the N.K.V.M., which the artists group Der Blaue Reiter later grew out of, and long-time partner of Alexej von Jawlensky.Having personally trained with Ilya Repin and other well-known artists at a young age, she decided to support Jawlensky's work as an artist. She was financially independent on account of a pension from the czar, and she moved to Munich in 1896, together with Jawlensky. They travelled to France together in 1906 in order to study there. Werefkin felt a bond with the art of the Nabis and the work of van Gogh, Gauguin, Bernard and Anquetin, and she would later pass these ideas on to Wassily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter, with whom she and Jawlensky would become friends in Munich during the following years (Bernd Fäthke, Marianne Werfkin - “des blauen Reiterreiterin”, in: exhib. cat. Marianne Werefkin: Vom Blauen Reiter zum Großen Bären, Städtische Galerie Bietigheim-Bissingen/Museen Böttcher Straße/Paula Modersohn-Becker Museum Bremen 2014, p. 44). Together, but independently, they discovered Murnau as a rural place of refuge - in 1909 Münter would purchase a house there, the so-called “Russian house”. Initially, however, they stayed at an inn during the summer months from 1907 to 1909.Their occupation with local farmers' folk art provided a source from which they drew new artistic impulses in a way that might be compared with how the Brücke artists of Dresden sought their salvation in the tribal art of Oceania and Africa during their search for a pristine naturalness. Kandinsky and his artist friends were particularly fascinated by reverse-glass painting, and works by Werefkin based on this Bavarian form of painting also exist (Fäthke, op. cit., fig. 48, 49). She was additionally interested in the Bavarian farmers themselves and their customs. On the one hand, the image of Rosalia Leiß is defined by the simplicity of its forms; on the other hand, the precisely modelled face of the sitter stands out in contrast to them. The portrait's exceptional interest feeds on this dichotomy: generalised forms reminiscent of the simple two-dimensionality of reverse-glass painting paired with an individual linearity. The tonality in various shades of green is subtly combined with violet. Here Werefkin establishes a complementary contrast between two secondary colours. Rosalia's cool eyes rest on the viewer with a searching gaze that almost seems a little amused. The 74-year-old embodies dignity and self-confidence, not as a simple farmer, but as the “wife of the agriculturalist” Leiß mentioned on the reverse side. The advanced nature of Werefkin's concept of painting becomes obvious through a comparison with Gabriele Münter's painted portrait of the same model from the following year, in which neither psychological depth nor a dialogue with the viewer is pursued (see comparative illus.).“The opening of the first exhibition of the N.K.V.M. took place on 1 December 1909, with 16 artists. It 'then became a major exhibition in Munich', said Jawlensky. […] Jawlensky was represented by eleven works in the exhibition. Werefkin presented six paintings, including 'Schuhplattler', a painting in which she pays tribute to Bavarian customs. […]Werefkin's 'Schuhplattler' and her reverse-glass paintings demonstrate that the Russian painter was committed to supporting Bavarian folk art.” (Fäthke, op. cit., p. 46). Werefkin's 1908 portrait of Rosalia Leiß was not shown at this exhibition of the “Neue Künstlervereinigung München” and instead remained with the family of the sitter.

        WEREFKIN, MARIANNE (Tula 1870 - 1938 Ascona) Allerseelen. Ca. 1930. Tempera on paper, laid on cardboard. With the monogram lower left: MW. 635 x 75 cm. Provenance: Privately owned, Switzerland (purchased directly from the artist in 1933), through inheritance with the present owner. WEREFKIN, MARIANNE VON (Tula 1870 - 1938 Ascona) Allerseelen. Um 1930. Tempera auf Papier, auf Karton aufgelegt. Unten links monogrammiert: MW. 66 x 76 cm. Provenienz: Privatbesitz Schweiz (direkt bei der Künstlerin 1933 gekauft), durch Erbschaft an die heutigen Eigentümer. Marianne von Werefkin betrachtet die Kunst in erster Linie als Quelle der Hoffnung: 'Wir Künstler müssen durch persönliche Leiden zur Versöhnung mit dem Leben durchdringen und es in allen seinen Formen anerkennen. Über dem Zusammensturz unseres Lebens müssen wir den Tempel der Hoffnung und des Glaubens für andere schaffen, das ist unsere Bestimmung.' (zit aus: Bernd Fäthke, Marianne Werefkin - Leben und Werk, München 1988, S. 137) Wie viele andere russische Maler teilt Marianne von Werefkin das Schicksal eines durch das Weltgeschehen gezwungenermassen bewegten Lebens; das prägenste Schicksal ist wohl ihr Verhältnis zu Alexej Jawlensky. Diesen lernt sie 1892 in Russland kennen und wird mit ihm eine Beziehung über 27 Jahre führen. Marianne von Werefkin ist zum Zeitpunkt ihres ersten Treffens in der Malerei weiter fortgeschritten als Jawlensky und so beschliesst sie, den mitttellosen Offizier zu fördern. Sie macht ihn mit ihrem Lehrer Ilija Repin bekannt, der ihn in seiner Malschule ausbildet. 1896, nach dem Tod ihres Vaters mit einer hohen Zarenrente ausgestattet, siedelt sie mit Jawlensky nach München über und wird dort ein Mitglied der 'Lukasbruderschaft' - einer losen Verbindung gleichgesinnter, meist russischer Künstler. 1909 gehörte sie zu den Gründungsmitgliedern der 'Neuen Münchner Künstlervereinigung', schliesst sich 1911 jedoch nicht der Sezession des 'Blauen Reiters', die von Wassily Kandinsky und Franz Marc gegründet wird, an. 1913 stellt sie dennoch ihre Werke mit den Malern dieser Gruppe im ersten Deutschen Herbstsalon aus. 1914 flieht sie gemeinsam mit Jawlensky in die Schweiz, zunächst nach St. Prex, danach nach Zürich. 1918 lassen sie sich endgültig in Ascona nieder. Dort ist sie die treibende Kraft bei der Gründung der Künstlervereinigung 'Der grosse Bär', 1920 stellt sie auf der Biennale in Venedig aus. 1921 trennt sich Jawlensky von ihr und heiratet in Wiesbaden die Mutter seines Sohnes. Marianne von Werefkins Gemälde sind in ihrer Ausdruckskraft und ihrer Art, dem Betrachter unter vielen Schichten symbolisch Geschichten zu erzählen, einzigartig. Eine spannende Mischung verschiedener Einflüsse manifestiert sich darin: zum einen der russischen Peredwischnicki ('Wanderer'), eine sozial engagierte Künstlergruppe, die sich dem sozialistischen Realismus verschrieben hat und die Melancholie der russischen Seele in ihren Werken thematisieren; zum anderen jener des Expressionismus. Eduard Schmid sagt treffend über sie: 'Wie merkwürdig sind doch diese Bilder von Marianne von Werefkin. Sie sind nicht in eine Norm zu bringen und wollte man dies dennoch tun, so würde man am besten zwischen Kirchner und Chagall suchen (…). Ein Spuk in bösen und guten Tagen war ihre Malerei und einer mit bösen und guten Gespenstern.' (Eduard Schmid, Auf Besuch bei Marianne von Werefkin, in: Marianne von Werefkin, Zeugnis und Bild, Zürich 1975 S. 23-24). In ihren Werken schwingt immer eine Ambivalenz zwischen Melancholie und Freude, Trauer und Hoffnung. So beinhaltet gerade das vorliegende Werk 'Allerseelen' all diese Symbolik. Marianne von Werefkin thematisiert hier das römisch-katholische Kirchenfest, an dem die Gläubigen der Verstorbenen gedenken. Es zeigt einen Friedhof, der von hohen Bergen eingebettet ist. Wir sehen einen Priester und zwei Frauen, die ihn gerade betreten, um Kränze niederzulegen. Die Friedhofsmauer erstrahlt in hellem Grün in der vom Mond erleuchteten Nacht. Einem Schiffsrumpf gleich umschliesst die Friedhofsmauer den Platz und die Kirche schützend vor den Wogen der Welt. Gleich einem Schiffsmast ragt der helle, gelbe Kirchturm gen Himmel und strahlt Sicherheit sowie Zuversicht aus. Die bewegte Biographie der Künstlerin hält immer Einzug in ihre Werke, Emotionen wie Schmerz, aber auch Freude, gläubige Zuversicht und Selbstbestimmung vereint sie virtuos zu ausdruckstarken, farbprächtigen Meisterwerken, wie wir im vorliegenden Werk eindrücklich sehen.

After the outbreak of World War I they moved to Switzerland, finally settling down in the Ticino Ascona at the Lake Maggiore in 1919. There she found inspiration for her paintings which is shown in the work presented here entitled 'The Bridge'. Following the spirit of modern times, her images are characterized by expressive, contrasting colors. They are compositions of bright color fields, clearly outlined by dark contours. The paintings of Gauguin, Munch or Van Gogh certainly influenced Werefkins works that are reminiscent of symbolism as well, merging to an innovative style of painting.

In her paintings the artist was influenced by the art of Gauguin, Munch and Symbolism. In 1908 Jawlensky and Werefkin spent some time in Murnau together with the befriended artist couple Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinsky, this became a productive time. Shortly thereafter they founded the artist group 'Neue Künstlervereinigung München' (NKVM). In 1911 Kandinsky left the group and established along with Franz Marc the artist group 'Blauer Reiter', which Werefkin and Jawlensky joined in 1912.

The two years that Werefkin spent in Murnau with Alexei Jawlensky, Vasily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter led to the creation in 1909 of the Neue Künstlervereinigung, precursor to the celebrated Blaue Reiter group. In die Nacht hinein... , like another tempera composition from the same cycle published in Otto Fischer's 1912 book Das neue Bild, was in all probability inspired by one of the Shakespeare tragedies put on in Murnau and possibly depicts a scene from King Lear. This work has a fairytale atmosphere and an intelligible symbolic message underlying the scene playing out on stage. These qualities, together with the strangeness of the bench seats bereft of an audience, owe much to the tense, mystical lilac-blue colouring of the painting and convey Werefkin's dramatic perception of the world and the meaning which she invested in colour as a means of imbuing her painting with psychological animation.

The entire suite comprises no more than a few tempera paintings from that milestone period in the history of art when the "Russian baroness" achieved the peak of her influence over the Munich colony of modernist artists, determining to a great extent the visual language and artistic trends of the 20th century. The two years that Werefkin spent in Murnau with Alexei Jawlensky, Vasily Kandinsky and Gabriele Münter led to the creation in 1909 of the Neue Künstlervereinigung, precursor to the celebrated Blaue Reiter group. Throughout her career Werefkin remained true to expressionism, symbolism and every one of their attendant apocalyptic ideas. Any picture by her that depicts real life, be it a landscape, or genre scene, is essentially just a stage screen, with a different, secret world hidden behind it. The duty of the artist is to capture and portray that world not through any outward resemblance but through a system of "symbols of lines and colours". It was inevitable that Werefkin's interest in the tragic illusions and travesties of the human world, voiced constantly in her Letters, would find its reflection in her art too. It is therefore unsurprising that in 1909 motifs from theatre - inspired in part by her acquaintance, then friendship, with the dancer Alexander Sakharoff - found their way into her arsenal of images. In the summer of 1910, however, it was evidently the productions by touring Berlin theatre companies in honour of the Munich Oktoberfest centenary that spurred her to create a whole cycle of works in tempera depicting outdoor performances. Not far from Munich, and also taking part in this grand festival of theatre, was the little town of Murnau where Werefkin and Jawlensky were often guests of Gabriele Münter. The main summer event there was to be the staging of several Shakespeare plays, ending on 28th August in the garden of Emanuel von Seidl's villa with a performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream inthe presence of the Queen Maria Sophie of Bavaria and Elisabeth of Bavaria, Queen of Belgium. In die Nacht hinein... like another tempera composition from the same cycle published in Otto Fischer's 1912 book Das neue Bild, was in all probability inspired by one of the Shakespeare tragedies put on in Murnau and possibly depicts a scene from King Lear. This work has a fairytale atmosphere and an intelligible symbolic message underlying the scene playing out on stage.

Painted in 1923, Nighttime Fishing in Ascona is without doubt among the best examples of Marianne von Werefkin's mature work, in which she achieved new artistic heights after a traumatic period in her life. A major figure in the development of German Expressionism, the work of Werefkin has long been overshadowed by her protegé and long-term companion, the painter Alexej von Jawlensky. Born into the family of a wealthy Russian general, Werefkin's artistic talents were encouraged early on in her life by her mother, who was also a painter. She took private lessons in St Petersburg under Ilya Repin, who was full of praise for her early, Realist paintings. Werefkin later wrote: "The great Realist Ilya Repin was delighted with my things... I admired him a lot, but we never agreed. At that time I was called the Russian Rembrandt, I exhibited at the famous Itinerant Exhibitions [...] I received brilliant reviews and I despaired. The Realist world was as strange to me as the Romantic. I had other goals in mind." It was through Repin that Werefkin met Jawlensky in 1891, an event that would change her life forever. In 1896, they moved to Munich and Werefkin gave up her own work in order to devote herself entirely to Jawlenky's career. It was only in 1906 that she again took up painting, influenced by Gauguin, Munch, the Nabis and the Fauves. Werefkin spent the summer of 1908 in Murnau, painting together with Jawlensky, Gabriele Münter and Wassily Kandinksy. The following year they founded the Neue Künstlervereinigung München, which prefigured Der Blaue Reiter. The present work depicts the Swiss town of Ascona located on the shores of Lake Maggiore, where Werefkin settled in 1918. Forced to leave Germany at the beginning of the First World War, Werefkin had lost everything. Despite these difficulties, she found new creative energy which allowed her to paint some of her best works. Her paintings became more narrative and lyrical, and acquired a new depth of meaning. Nighttime Fishing in Ascona, which has been included in many major exhibitions of the artist's work, epitomizes this extremely fruitful period in Werefkin's career.
