Bergsee vor schneebedecktem Gebirge. 1910/20s.
Coloured chalk.
Monogrammed "K" and "L" in the upper corners. On light grey paper. 34,3 : 49 cm (13,5 : 19,2 in), the full sheet. In this impressive work by Käthe Loewenthal, a snow-capped mountain range in deep blue-black rises above a mountain lake. Characteristic features of Loewenthal’s work are assured handling of line and an expressive palette. [NB]

Good overall impression. With paper tape mounting along the reverse edges, minimally overlapping to the front. Edges with a few tiny splits, upper right corner with a tiny paper loss. With minor vertical traces of rubbing, more obvious in the centre.
