BERLIN BRUSHES: LESSER URY
Lesser Ury, Bülowstraße am Hochbahn (1922)
Is it still raining in Berlin today (I am asking from a tiny village hidden among the gentle hills of Lower Silesia)? Are the streets as beautiful and full of mystery as in this 1922 painting by Lesser Ury?
Go to Bülowstraße tonight and find out if the scene Ury immortalised in his work disappeared along with the artist and the neighbourhood he knew so well or whether the spirit he captured that day still lives on in the reflecting lights and the raindrops…
