"Pechstein usually printed just a few copies, in his early days only between 5 and a maximum of ten", this changed after 1912 only. (Quote after: G.Krüger, Das Druckgraphische Werk Max Pechsteins, Hamburg and Tökendorf 1988, p. 17). The inscription "I" on our sheet is the sheet's number within the edition, which means that this is the first proof of a maximum of ten. [FS].
A sheet with this motif is offered on the international auction market for the first time (source: artnet.com).
