The larger series is concerned with different genres of representational painting, such as portraiture, still life, and landscape. Mountain Years focuses on a romantic notion of landscape painting. The series was taken on a stay around Frauenkirch, near Davos, Switzerland, on daily excursions to the Stafelalp: a remote place in an Alpine area where the German Expressionist painter Ernst Ludwig Kirchner arrived in 1917 to recover from illness, and shortly thereafter started painting his notable mountain pictures.
