Junge Frau mit Haarschleife. 1924. Colored chalk drawing with India ink. Lower right signed and dated. Titled by a hand other than that of the artist on verso of the backing board. There with the estate stamp. On wove paper. 49.5 x 39.5 cm (19.4 x 15.5 in), size of sheet. Backing board: 55,8 x 44,7 cm (22 x 17,6 in). [CH]. • From the artist's estate. • Brightly colored drawing with an almost caricature character. • With the distortion of the figure, the unusual colors and the inclined perspective, Pechstein detaches the representation from the actual motif.
