Lot description
Brandenburger Tor vom Pariser Platz aus gesehen. 1928.
Pastel on board.
Signed in lower left. 35 x 50 cm (13.7 x 19.6 in).

• Prime example of Ury's Berlin scenes as it shows all characteristic elements in unmatched manner: light effects, cars waiting for passengers and people enganged in modern big city hustle and bustle.
• One of the few views in Ury's creation in which the Berlin symbol Brandenburg Gate occupies such a key position.
• Particularly dramatic and light-flooded Berlin townscape in masterly impressionist and atmopsheric pastel technique.
• In terms of coloring one of the best works from his late period of creation, the reflections on the rain-soaked street offer an iridiscent play of colors.
• Artistic orchestration of Berlin in the Roaring Twenties and the type of the modern emancipated woman.
• Acquired for its historic relevance for the Deutsche Bank Collection two weeks after the Fall of the Wall on November 9, 1989
