BERLNI BRUSHES: URY ON A RAINY DAY IN BERLIN

Lesser Ury UdL and B Tor
 
Here is a perfect painting to go with this greyish and rather damp day in Berlin: Unter den Linden on a rainy day in the 1920s, painted by one of our all-time favourite Berlin artists, Lesser Ury.
 
Ury, a member of Berlin Secession – an art association of German artists whose works did not comply with the requirements of the influential conservative association of this kind supported by the state – became famous for his impressionist takes on Berlin streets and interiors as well as for his passion for reflecting or illuminated surfaces.
 
He was particularly fond of painting rainy scenes or capturing the effects created by street illumination in the city. His own neighbourhood, the elegant and affluent (but not “too” affluent) area around Nollendorfplatz and Bülowstraße – Ury and his family spent 31 years as residents of Nollendorfplatz 1 – was often a great inspiration.
 
This particular painting is one of many from a series of pictures of Berlin´s main boulevard.
