Landscape

Henn Roode Landscape undated oil, cardboard 56.5 × 67.7 cm

This painting is somewhat exceptional in Roode’s body of creative work. It is considerably more tranquil in style than Roode’s works ordinarily are. The landscape motif is also somewhat unusual for him since Roode’s primary emphasis was on urban views, seascapes, portraits, nudes and abstractions. According to Kädi Talvoja, however, Roode grew out of abstractions at the end of the 1960’s, and seascapes took up ever more space.
