In Hann Trier's 1953 landscape-format painting "Jumping into the Water," his style, which had been changing since 1949 under the influence of Hans Hartung and Rolf Cavael, becomes visible. The broad brushstrokes in the background are contrasted with the black line strokes that punctuate the picture surface. In this way, graphic and painterly elements merge and produce the formal character specific to Trier's painting. In this early work, the simultaneous repetitive movement is already clearly visible, which would later take on such a typical trait in his entire oeuvre and henceforth develop into the dominant formal principle. Possibly the jumps of a thrown stone on the flat water surface may have moved the artist to this picture.
