Who does not feel reminded of a painting by the impressionists Monet or Caillebotte in this painting (cover photo) by Michael Nguyen? The comparison is not so far-fetched: after the construction of the Munich-Starnberg railroad line in 1854, more and more city dwellers came to the romantic and charming Würm Valley for a cure or summer retreat, to enjoy the enchanting landscape. What is outside is no longer outside. Trees, forests, mountains, rivers, lakes. Michael Nguyen has transformed these elements in his artworks into feelings, fantasies and dreams. They become part of our inner nature.
