"My thoughts often wander to you, to Borkum. What are you up to? There is so much I have to tell you. I kiss your hands dearly and send affectionate regards to Mieze. A. Jawlensky."
Alexej von Jawlensky, on a postcard to Tony Kirchhoff at Köhlers Strand Hotel, dated July 27, 1928, from before his visit to Borkum

In summer 1928 Jawlensky and Tony Kirchhoff met on the North Sea island Borkum. Tony Kirchhoff came in company of her daughter who was nick-named Mieze. The small seascape can be seen as a spontaneous gift to the daughter on occasion of her name day. In addition to his intensive occupation with the Meditations, which occupy a prominent position in Jawlensky's creation during those years, the artist also made still lifes and small landscape impressions like this work here. An equivalet work from the same year (Jawlensky/Pieroni-Jawlensky 1303) shows the sea at sunset in similar atmosphere. The summarily suggested figures and the lamp post in right margin must be understood as the composition's anchor points. Jawlensky applied a swift brushstroke, as the sea's surface shows a clear structure it can be assumd that the artist executed the work in front of nature. [KD/JS]
