Hann Trier is one of the most authoritative representatives of informal art in Germany. Important commissions at major sites culminated in the monumental ceiling painting in the rebuilt Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin. "The October Picture" was created in 1961 and convinces with its expressive as well as subtle painterly quality. The violet-gold pictorial form, which tapers off towards the edges, spreads like a colorful carpet of foliage over the entire height of the canvas wall. The small-scale, honeycomb-like spatiality of earlier paintings gradually gives way here to an almost baroque overall spatiality. The pale red ground, speckled with light green, and the brushstroke are treated equally. The lines move on the same plane with the picture surface. We see here the interweaving of gestural movement (line), painting ground (space) and color substance (matter) that is characteristic of Trier's artistic work. Matter and movement become identical, movement transforms matter. Trier has here captured the month of October as a movement and presents what repeats itself at regular intervals as a harmonious surface movement - as a gesturally moving body of color that captures the mood of a golden autumn day, not least through the warm color scheme.
