"Bonjour tristesse"

Françoise Sagan had her bestseller "Bonjour tristess" published in 1954. Five years later Ursula Dethleffs painted her back glass picture "Herbstfest".Both works are based on the feelings of the post-war generation of 1945: the whole world is open to children. They enjoy their new freedom to the fullest. When celebrating many festivals, they do not find the meaning for their lives. Therefore, the short intoxication immediately follows the autumn mood with tristesse. 

This mood is also the basis for the reverse glass image. Moving is the suggestive, mysterious love of Ursula to her friend, because she was sacrificed to the then prevailing convention.

Hopeful green in color gradations chooses the artist as a background on the wall, on the floor and in the dress of the girl sitting in front. At the top of the picture two couples are dancing - snuggled together with slow rhythms.

Forward, the fallen autumn leaves lead our gaze to the third pair. There are two young women: At the very front, one of the women lolls on the sofa and draws with pleasure at her slender pipe: in the last century George Sand was still a provocation of the feminists. In the picture, the whistle is just the sign of the woman for: maybe I'm from another star. Her partner is standing in black and red dress between the bistro tables. Her eyes fall on the partner who lolls in front of her.

What connects the two? Why are not they together? Your searching look indicates - I love you. Both were not allowed to come out: By 1959, this affection was better sublimated - especially among women. Those who could not live their love had few ways out. A way out was the entrance to the monastery. For the friend Ursula was probably the impetus, her comprehensive love for the Mother of God, the all-over bridge. Ursula Dethleffs always remained with her favorite childhood friend, even after her entry into the nearby monastery.

Courageous and composed, Ursula Dethleffs painted her "Autumn Festival". The two friends were torn between convention and love. It is a shy and courageous image. Nothing is provocative, everything looks relaxed. The artist does not transfigure anything - she does not alienate the abstract. Everything is clearly limited. No violation is allowed. Only a different gray has Ursula the colors conceded - gray that corresponds to the fog in the fall.
