Beautiful Days in the High Black Forest, Spring 1980, 1980
About the object
The same panorama of the Black Forest is depicted in three rows each comprising four paintings. Painted at different times of the day, the four paintings join together like a panorama - each row painted on different days respectively: neither the day nor the hour are the same in the paintings, yet Dreher's repetitions expresses a sense of lasting immutability.

The twelve pictures in the series »Beautiful Days in the High Black Forest« are arranged in such a way that the same wide Black Forest panorama stretches in front of one's eyes in three rows, one above the other. However, Dreher has divided the view into four individual sections, each section representing a discrete painting. The paintings were made on different days at different times of the day. Sky, clouds, light and their effect on the mountains below are completely different. However, the whole spectrum ultimately comprises a panoramic view from St. Märgen to the southern part of the Black Forest. Neither the day nor the hour are the same in the paintings, yet Dreher's repetitions express a sense of lasting immutability.
