"The nature of these chattering ducks is just as true as the yellow sunlight and the delicate violet shadows, the brown rocks shimmering in the sunlight, the pool of water reflecting the blue sky, the brown branches and the roots of the bank. Everything is painted broadly and succulently with a healthy love of sun and color. How airy the ducks are, crouched together with snow-white plumage and lemon-yellow and red-yellow beaks, under the play of sun and shadow. Every brushstroke testifies to the painterly spirit and sense of color of the artist."
Dr. Paul Kühn on ooccasion of a Koester exhibition at the Leipzig Kunstverein 1904, quoted from: Ruth Stein, Hans Koester, Alexander Koester 1864-1932, Leben und Werk, Recklinghausen 1988, p. 52.
