Farben, die im Tiefland matt erscheinen, sind hier voller Ausdruck und Kraft. Die wunderbaren Werke des grossen Engadin-Malers Giovanni Segantini geben Zeugnis davon.

Colours that appear dull in the lowlands, are here full of deep expression and power. Giovanni Segantini, the great painter of the Engadine, expressed it in his wonderful works.

Les couleurs qui paraissent ternes dans les basses terres, ici, sont pleines d'expression et de pouvoir. Les œuvres magnifiques du grand peintre Giovanni Segantini en Engadine font témoignage.

I colori che appaiono opachi in pianura, qui ci sono pieno di espressione e di potere. Le meraviglie opere del grande pittore Giovanni Segantini a l'Engadina fanno testimonianza.

Rosebay Willow Herb in the British Isles, Fireweed in North America because it is the first plant to grow after a forest fire has destroyed all other plants. Lovely, May! Theolfa
