notes

Painted in 1922, the present work depicts a view of the Walchensee, where Corinth and his wife had their summer residence. The moonlight highlights the Karwendel mountain range and the Alps beyond that form a backdrop to the lake. The present painting is one of the most powerful works from Corinth's major series of views of the Walchensee that he painted during the early 1920s, shortly before his death, as the last great summation of his artistic vision.

The Walchensee is seen here from the Kanzel, a small hill on its shores that formed part of Corinth's property in Urfeld where the house stood and, as Charlotte Berend-Corinth later recalled, 'from which one enjoyed the most extensive view' (C. Berend-Corinth, op. cit., p. 812, translated from the German). The present composition, with its nocturnal purples and blues above the greens of the Kanzel, centres on a tall larch that rises proudly and symbolically from the meadows below. In the left foreground, nestling close by the shore, can be seen the Hotel Fischer am See. This moonlit scene of harmony and quiet drama is one of the most fully realised and compelling of Corinth's late landscapes, in which his Impressionist brushstroke is combined with a bold expressiveness of colour.
