Lesser Ury (1861-1931)

He is considered among the groundbreaking representatives of Impressionism in Germany, where not only his streets by night but also his landscape views contributed to his popularity. 
He realized early on that he was not cut out for the pedantic operation of German academies and sought his fortune in Brussels and Paris.

From 1880 to 1886 he found in
plein - air painting his determination, his refuge .  Ury had his difficulties with interpersonal relationships, so that he often preferred the solitude of painting.  In the summer of 1892 he decided to travel for three months to Schleswig -Holstein, in order to work undisturbed over there.  On the recommendation of the older fellow painter Hans Olde, the choice fell on a village beach on the Kiel Fjord .  Ury wrote to Olde : "If I find any village through your kindness, in which the people are not too rough and let me work undisturbed, above all, I can not drink beer, only find milk, eggs, bread and butter, then I'm satisfied.  I want to paint a canvas once down 2-3 meters from nature. " (after Schlogel 1995)  The wide North German countryside with scattered mounts of hay fascinated Ury . Ury was an outstanding mood painter who dominated the entire gamut of color shades and color games.
