• High-contrast work in strong colors from the late creative period of the great expressionist. • The colors' freshness, the drawing's spontaneity and the depth that Schmidt-Rottluff realizes with scarce means deliver proof of the artist's poise and the creative powers characteristic of his later works.
The work is documented in the archive of the Karl and Emy Schmidt-Rottluff Foundation.
