    weit gediehen

    Quellen
    Ob Cézanne umfänglich auf seine Signatur verzichtete, weil auch er dem Großteil seiner Werke nur den Rang von Studien zubilligte oder sie für unvollendet hielt, bleibt angesichts der Fülle seiner unsignierten und gleichwohl unterschiedlich weit gediehenen Malereien auf Leinwand und Papier eine nur unbefriedigend zu beantwortende Frage.

    es gehört so zusammen: ...seiner unterschiedlich weit gediehenen Malereien... - ...of his paintings having developed/blossomed to varying degrees...

    Vorschlagthrove is not a word

    gediehen is translated as throve... I've never heard this form and am 99% positive that the past tense of thrive is thrived...

    Instead of relying on what you have heard, you might take a look in the dictionary. "Throve" is certainly a word though it is of little help in this context.

    Vorschlagthrived versus throve
    Kommentar

    I'm sure I'm the last to know about it, but I've just discovered a very useful tool called the Google Books Ngram Viewer. When you enter two words separated by a comma (but no space), like "throve,thrived," the tool generates a graph comparing the popularity of the two over time.


    It's akin to googling both words and counting the number of hits, but it also gives you a picture of how the popularity of each has changed over time. (The default period is 1900-2000.)


    Here's the result for "thrived vs. throve"

    (Interesting, eh?)

    Kann sein :-), aber das Ergebnis ist tatsächlich interessant.


    P.S. Ein freundlich gemeinter Hinweis: Du solltest in Deinen Persönlichen Einstellungen noch einmal schauen, ob Deine Formulierung zur Berufsangabe grammatisch etwas verbessert werden sollte

    @wienergriessler: Thank you for letting me know! (Oh, the booboos we make in each other's languages! So cute to hear, but so embarrassing to make!) I've switched it to English since everything else on my LEO profile seems to be anyway - and besides, my work had evolved somewhat in the ensuing years, so it needed updating anyway.
