Self-portrait, 1905

“I knew that I must paint not what I saw, but only what was in me, in my soul. Figuratively speaking, it was like this: In my heart I felt as if there were an organ, which I had to sound. And nature, which I saw before me, only prompted me. And that was a key that unlocked this organ and made it sound… They are songs without words.”

 Alexej von Jawlensky, Lebenserinnerungen, 1938
