"I was outside for a little more than just an hour and I had to rub my hands every five minutes. - There was a frosty wind with snow all around me, the paint got tough but did not freeze."
Friedrich Kallmorgen in a letter to his fiancé Margarethe Hormuth-Eber in January 1881, quote from: Sylvia Bieber, in: ex. cat. Friedrich Kallmorgen, Karlsruhe 2016, p. 42.

Winter- and snow landscapes, among which our 'Wald im Winter' from 1883 counts, are typical for Friedrich Kallmorgen's early period of creation. Fascinated by nature in winter, the artist went outside even in frosty temperatures, in order to make sketches and oil studies plein-air, as he described in a letter to his fiancee Margarethe Hormuth-Eber in January 1881. Kallmorgen spent this particularly snowy winter in the Harz mountains near Blankenburg. "Oh Dear, Gretel, it is hard work. Today was a really bad day with cutting winds. Thaw at night, then again frost, so that I broke into the snow with every step I made, having a hard time walking. The son of the owner of the inn 'Pfeifenkrug‘ picked me up with his sleigh at half past eight in the morning. He gave me a warming foot muff.[…] I couldn't stay longer than an hour, rubbing my hands every five minutes. - Bitter winds were blowing and I was completely cloaked, the paint got doughy, but didn't freeze." (Quote after: Sylvia Bieber, in: ex. cat. Friedrich Kallmorgen, Karlsruhe 2016, p. 42).
