Lot description
Insel im Main. 1928.

• The year before thiw work was made, Siddi and Erich Heckel visited the painter Gertraud Rostosky (1876-1959) in Würzburg where he made several depictions of the surroundings.
• With spontaneous and skillful brushstrokes as well as with inventive painterly means, Heckel captured the cheerful, summery and light scene of the male figures floating on the Main.
• Even during the "Brücke" period, the depiction of bathers and figures outdoors were among the main motifs of Erich Heckel and his fellow artists.
• In the 1920s, Heckel went on several trips and showed an increased preference for landscape subjects in which he sought to combine topographical accuracy with atmospheric landscape elements
.

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