In his painting Bauerngarten (cottage garden) from 1908, Amiet depicts an overwhelming and dominant flora in the style of divisionism with long and sometimes pastose brushstrokes. His tightly arranged brush strokes constitute a rich vegetation, flowers, fences and in the foreground a bowed figure. Here, Amiet refuses to depict any details – therefore, the forms and figures seem to merge with the painting’s pictorial structure. The canvas, which Amiet painted with mainly green shades, captivates through the dynamics of the brushwork. In contrast to the rather well-arranged brushwork in Bauerngarten, the artist choses a looser style for his painting Blühender Obstgarten (blooming fruit garden) that he painted 8 years later, in 1916. Because of the painting’s red, green and blue complementary colours, it evokes an intense flickering impression.
