Versinkende Sonne - Noturno 2

Versinkende Sonne, Egon Schiele
You call this painting just a sunset…. Looking at this work, however, one would have to say, with all the appropriate melancholy, that the sun is sinking. It’s already grown dark and cold in the foreground, and every leaf on the twigs has grown stiff from the cold. And before such a deeply melancholic sky, which no artist before Schiele ever painted in such a way, I am even moved to ask: will this sun, which is just departing, ever return?”  -- Rudolf Leopold
