Flower Beds in the Dresden Garden

This was by far my favorite painting I saw all day. It is oil on canvas piece was created by German artist Ernst Ludwig Kirchner c. 1910. What initially drew me to this piece was the vibrant colors and simple lines, it really seemed to pop off the wall and out of the frame. Kirchner's choice to use such vibrant colors for a landscape, as opposed to Earth tones, to me gives this piece an almost mystical feeling, as you don't typically see such vibrant colors in an average landscape.
