The Romanian artist Arthur Segal was associated with Expressionism and with Dada before developing his personal style of which Harbour in Bornholm is a mature example. He had visited the island in the Baltic before the First World War, but this painting was based upon a photograph. Through the fragmented four-part structure, Segal sought to break with a single point of focus or compositional dominance. He remarked: ‘In nature everything is of equal importance and interest.’ This dynamism achieves a new sense of balance.
