Alexej von Jawlensky was occupied with the still life at an early point in his artistic career, in particular with the apple still life. In these works, the influence of Late Impressionism can still be seen. From 1911 on, the human face moved to the center of his artistic work, which he explored in an obsessive frenzy. In the last years of his life, which were dominated by illness, he returned to the genre of the still life. Totally immersed in his painterly "Meditations," Jawlensky's recourse to early creations seems like a reminiscence of happier times. "My friends, the apples, which I adore for their lovely, red, yellow, purple and green dresses and on different backgrounds, are no longer apples to me. Their hues and their bright colors on a sober background merge into a harmony permeated with dissonances and they sound to my eye like a music that puts me in the mood of my soul. Apples, trees, human faces are only hints for me to see something else in them: the life of color captured by passion, by someone in love." (Quoted from: Clemens Weiler, Köpfe, Gesichter, Meditationen, 1997, p. 121) [SM].
