photoblog image Peter August Böckstiegel

Peter August Böckstiegel

 

Yesterday I showed the farmhose and atelier of the artist Böckstiegel  in the village Arrode/Werther nr. Bielefeld. His colourful carvings are decorating  the entrance facade of the house. I could photograph them whereas I am not allowed to post his  paintings, unless  I would ask for the licence of posting. In  the village a few houses are also adorned with paintings of Böckstiegel. He is quite more than a 'Bauernmaler' (of rural paintings) as he called himself. Sometimes he is called a sort of a Westphalian Van Gogh.

This is rather beautiful, Philine.
Philine: Many thanks, Ray!
They make a good collage Philine.
Philine: Thank you, Frank!
Ahhh more color!!!!
Philine: Perhaps a bit too much colour, but we need colours in our life. Many thanks, Elizabeth!

This slightly naive style using bright colours is very pleasing Philine
Philine: Yes, a bit naive style, many thanks, Chris!

What great colours here, Philine. I can see your joy here. In the link I can see the connection they make with van Gogh, he surely is inspired by him and I saw some "copies"....
Philine: A red house with so many colours was a sort of provocation in Böckstiegel's times. Heel bedankt, Astrid! You must have had a wonderful time in Austria.
How delightful, Philine. His work has a Pennsylvania Dutch folk art feel to it for me.
Philine: Your comparison is interesting, Ginnie! Heel bedankt! (Has the birthday card for Astrid arrived in August?)

Oh, I'm so glad that you showed this in more of the detail. I see lots of little bluebirds and pretty flowers. .
Philine: I know you like the blue birds. Many thanks, Alan!

It looks like a Vlaminck Fauvist painting.
Philine: You are right, Böckstiegel was influenced by some painters of his time. Many thanks,Chad!

What a beautiful collage. It make me wish to visit that place and see it myself!
Philine: This house, accompanied by a modern museum, is worth to be visited indeed. I wanted to encourage myself by some vibrant colours. Heel bedankt, Salima!
Truly delightful artwork
Philine: I like it, too, many thanks, Martin!

Licensed to post.

At least, this post without the paintings is delightful...
Philine: I wished I could have photographed inside the house, but the laws are strong. Heel bedankt, Louis!
These are so lovely, well worth lots of photos.
Philine: I wanted to encourage myself by some intense colours. Many thanks, Brian!
There is an almost childlike innocence to this decoration Philine
Philine: You hit the nail on its head, thanks you very much, Bill!
