"When observing pictures like 'Port Vendres' [..], one fathoms the unique rhythms of Heckel's compositions. The character of the landscape depictions clearly benefits from the balance in his works. They are both energetic as well as calm and sunshiny, entirely free from the explosive suspense characteristic of his younger years." Paul Vogt, Erich Heckel, Recklinghausen 1965, p. 80.
