Life circulates, forms a cycle that continues uninterruptedly. Just as the globe as a whole the globe as a whole, natural events can also be reduced to the Canary Island of Tenerife. Tenerife. All life originates on the breeding ground of the four elements water, fire, earth and air.
"Beethoven" is an important painting for Loewel himself, as he admires the world of baroque and renaissance music and especially the works of the well known composer Georg Friedrich Händel (1685-1759) as well as of Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). As both had been playing a main role in the evolution of classical music, Ludwig van Beethoven was painted by Loewel in the end of the 1980ies. Loewel said: "I painted "Beethoven" while listening to Händels music." It took him six months to finish the artwork. Especially "Missa solemnis" and the 5th Symphony had an impact on him.
A homage to the construction of the new Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz is the painting by Horst G. Loewel. The focus is on the contrast between modern architecture and that of the Canary Baroque and the Renaissance - above all, however, is the power of the elements of nature.
