Jakob Bräckle is a constant in Swabian art. Like no other, he knows how to capture the tranquil country life away from the big city, with economical painterly means on small-format oil paintings. His miniatures from the early period concentrate on seemingly insignificant themes such as the Upper Swabian landscape and the everyday work of the farmers. However, they captivate through the dignified, clear composition as well as the atmospheric capture of the different times of day and seasons. The fact that the section of the work "Harvest" (1927) shown is captured from slightly below is a special feature of Bräckle's painting. Since he had been hampered in his walking since early childhood due to a medical malpractice, he could not stand for long and had to sit down to paint. The two-dimensionally treated blue sky, the field painted in fine strokes, and the broad horizon of this work exude a poetic, tart sublimity, and indeed the real goal of Bräckle's art was to make the eternal of nature tangible for his subject.
