"When I feel all liberated - placing clouds in the air, working them over in glazing colors afterwards - I take nature as basis while I still follow the path of my imagination [..], and this dreaming in front of nature or in the studio, that is so truly artistic, I really like it, perhaps more than anyone else does, it makes me happy, inspires me, my inner strength opens up, and that's what truly matters."
Otto Modersohn, diary entry on Mai 18, 1934, quote from: ex. cat. Otto Modersohn. Allgäu 1926-1939, p. 19.
