Badende. Verso: Sich bückende Figur
Aquarell und Graphit bzw. Graphitzeichnung 26,7/27.6 x 34,5 cm
According to the information given by the Heckel archives, the watercolour was sketched in Prerow, signature and inscription possibly added at later date. Related in motif is the lithograph "In den Dünen" (Dube 170) of 1911, a similar composition in the dunes with several figures, among them a standing nude in front of shrubs and a lying woman with crossed legs.
We would like to thank Hans Geissler and Renate Ebner, Erich Heckel Estate, Hemmenhofen, for kindly given information; the watercolour is registered in the archives.
