• Made in Caputh near Potsdam, a small town that Heckel often went to in order to draw and paint.
• In a scetch-like rendition, Heckel shows uss a caalm canal on which he impressively staged the light reflections on the water.
• The strong accentuations add a remakable expressiveness to the spontaneous depiction
.
