• From the best "Brücke" period in Dresden.
• The female nude in the studio was one of the main motifs of E. L. Kirchner and the "Brücke" artists during these years.
• For Kirchner, the act of drawing was an elementary necessity in the expression of spontaneous pictorial ideas.
• Instead of proportion, composition and pictorial structure, he was concerned with the immediate apprehension of a moment, which allowed no corrections or preparatory considerations.
• The unusually free, spontaneous drawings are regarded as particularly authentic expressions of the art of drawing in the early 20th century
