Watercolor and color chalks.
Lower right signed and dated. Titled in the lower left. On wove paper. 55.5 x 69 cm (21.8 x 27.1 in), the full sheet. [AW].


• In the year the work was created, Siddi and Erich Heckel spent a long time in Würzburg, where they were guests at the estate of the painter Gertraud Rostosky (1876-1959).
• During this stay he created paintings like “Marienveste bei Würzburg” (1927, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin), which has been on loan to the Federal Chancellery in Bonn since 1977.
• By dispensing with subordinate details, Heckel achieves generosity and simplicity in his depiction
.

The work is registered in the Erich Heckel Estate, Hemmenhofen on Lake Constance. We are grateful to Mrs Renate Ebner for the kind support in cataloging this lot.
