Walter Nessler, Premonition

This painting by Nessler, his most famous, depicts London being bombed. He painted it before the London Blitz. A highly evocative work that conveys the influence of German Expressionism on him, art he must have been exposed to before he fled his native Germany.



About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    The intensity of WW III could become so great that our art may be created by a few survivors and displayed on walls and ceilings of caves for future generations to enjoy.

    It took millennia to get where we are, but we could return to where we came from in minutes.

  6. I love German Expressionism, but this one seems pretty scary. And wonderful at the same time.
