Lot description

Brush and India ink drawing
Von Lüttichau 785. Monogrammed lower right. On wove paper. 44,2 x 31 cm (17,4 x 12,2 in), size of sheet

This is a very swift drawing of a subject that was quiote popular with the artist. Adolescent girls, which had conquered the Expressionist's world of motifs, particularly that of Erich Heckel and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, since the days of the 'Brücke' artists at the Moritzburg Lakes, also strongly influenced the ½uvre of Otto Mueller. The uncertain expression and the secret erotic appeal that these works have is also an indicator for their at first hesitant acceptance. [KD].
