"At times it seems that Champagne had been added to the colors of his works, that's how they sparkle, prickle and tingle. And there may be one or the other who, observing these pictures, fully realizes what Impressionism really means." Richard Braungart, Leipziger Illustrierte Zeitung, no date (quote after: Hermann Reiner, (editor), Otto Pippel, Munich 1948, p. 19).
