Gewitter über dem Rosengarten bei Bozen. 1914.
Oil on canvas.
Signed and dated in lower right. 53.5 x 74 cm (21 x 29.1 in). [JS].

• The mountain landscape is rendered on the canvas in a wonderful easy manner.
- The impasto and energetic mountain-cloud panorama in the background is particularly beautiful.
- During May 1914, after extensive travels in Egypt and Italy, Slevogt recovered in Bolzano, where he created watercolors and very few paintings of the snow-covered peaks of the Dolomites.
- Only one other painting from his trip to Italy has ever been offered on the international auction market (source: www.artprice.de).
- Together with Liebermann and Corinth, Slevogt is one of the outstanding representatives of German Impressionism
.

This work's authenticity has kindly been confirmed orally by Bernhard Geil. We are grateful for his kind expert advice.
