Signed, dated and titled in the center of the right margin. On J. W. Zanders laid paper (with the watermark). 55.8 x 69.6 cm (21.9 x 27.4 in), the full sheet.
Illustration inscribed with the abbreviations on the colors (in pencil), presumably executed in the studio at a later point. [CH].

• In spring of the year the work was made, Heckel traveled to Franconia, just as he had the year before.
• Heckel presumably depicts the view from Würzburg's Steinberg down the Main river over the valley with the adjacent hilly Franconian landscape.
• Heckel dissolves the landscape and the slopes of the vineyards into areas of color and rectangular flowing forms
