Segantini 06: Ritorno dal bosco – Rückkehr vom Wald, 1890

Ritorno dal bosco – Rückkehr vom Wald, 1890: (64 × 95 cm, Öl auf Leinwand, Segantini Museum St.Moritz, Depositum der Otto Fischbacher Giovanni Segantini Stiftung).
First painting with the explicit theme of death – the snow as a sheet of death and the way directly to the church tower (by Son Mitgel): The last stage of life has been reached. The picture location is probably at the corner of Veia Tgaplottas and Veia Davos Tga.


Although Giovanni Segantini does not feel bound by ecclesiastical worship, he uses symbolic elements in his paintings that are assigned to the ecclesiastical faith. With the motifs church tower, cross or mother-child, he creates a religious mood. 

In this picture, in addition to elements of death, references to life are also incorporated. The roots on the sledge indicate new life and the illuminated windows suggest warmth and life in the houses.
