The Seasons | Anselm Kiefer – Before Spring

The Seasons | Anselm Kiefer – Before Spring – NYTimes.com.

Text on the work is translated as follows: Snow melt in the Odenwald. Goodbye, winter, parting hurts but your departure makes my heart cheer. Gladly I forget thee, may you always be far away. Goodbye, winter, parting hurts.

Anselm Kiefer, "Snow Melt in Odenwald," 2010, gouache on photographic paper (click to enlarge)

The snow is melting and trees are sprouting.  I have applied the disc to the field in order to soften the ground for grass seed.  Not the above field, but our field here in Texas.  Warmer here.

  1. Oh yes it is time to do the field, what a reminder that it is that time of the year, to fertilize, irrigate, reseed etc etc ,work and no play. I just have 1 1/2 acres compared what you have.

  2. Yes, it’s time for those buds to show us the way into spring. Wonderful quote and photo. Goodbye winter and hello spring. It was a spring day here today. One to be treasured.

  3. I thought spring would be coming, but it snowed here last night, no complaints, since we do need the moisture, just have to wait a few more days for spring.

  4. That is so cool. Pardon my naivete…is it a current art piece or a historical piece?
