Na ja - n´bißken kleen is mein Mann ja - aba Enerjie hat der wie´n Jroßer. 1903. Watercolor over Chalk drawing. Signed and dated in bottom right, bottom left with estate stamp in red (Lugt 2676 b). On thin board. 25.2 x 20.2 cm (9.9 x 7.9 in), size of sheet. [KT]. • The important chronicler Heinrich Zille portrays his Berlin "Miljöh" (milieu) at the turn of the century in a pointed and astute manner. • Around 1900 a broader public became aware of Zille thanks to his drawings, which were also published in well-known magazines like "Simplicissimus" and "Jugend". • Large Zille collections are in the Kupferstichkabinett of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (purchased in 1921) and the world's most extensive one in the Mülheim an der Ruhr Art Museum.
