Über das Werk

Udo Peters is regarded as a chronicler of Worpswede's artistic community, where, as an artist of its second generation, he is said to have painted all the streets of the village. His later landscape paintings are characterised essentially by highly simplified details, which only become discernible within the overall pictorial image. The rather coarse, compact coloured forms unite to create a cohesive planar composition depicting a landscape motif. Typifying the late works of Udo Peters, people take centre stage, but only as minute, barely recognisable matchstick figures.
The composition of the "Landscape with Peat Diggers" is based on the design principles derived from the "golden section", which was held as the golden rule for attaining the ideal aesthetic proportions. The ratio of the larger area of the painting (sky) to the smaller (landscape) corresponds exactly to the ratio of the largest section of the picture to the entire surface - thus lending the pictorial structure the impression of a harmonious and balanced entity. The virtually clear and endless sky seems drawn ineluctably towards the horizon, whereas the earthy tones of the dark landscape are suggestive of late summer and autumn.
(Eva Müller-Remmert)
