About Lady in a Green Jacket

The artwork “Lady in a Green Jacket” was created by artist August Macke in 1913. This oil on canvas is a fine example of the Expressionist movement, showcasing Macke’s unique style within this artistic genre. The artwork measures 44 x 43.5 cm and can be classified as a genre painting. It is housed in the Museum Ludwig, located in Cologne, Germany.

The composition features a central figure of a lady dressed in a vibrant green jacket, which stands out against the more muted tones of the surrounding figures and background. The scene appears to be set outdoors, with representations of trees and the suggestion of a park or garden setting through the use of vivid colors and abstract shapes. The figures are stylized, with simplified forms and a flat appearance, which is characteristic of Expressionist art. The brushwork varies across the canvas, with some areas rendered in a smooth manner while others are more textured, creating a dynamic and emotional visual experience. Overall, the artwork conveys a sense of atmosphere and mood through the use of color and form rather than focusing on realistic detail, inviting the viewer to interpret the scene through their own emotional lens.
