Literature

August Hoff, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Leben und Werk, Berlin 1961, with ill. 109 ("Zwei stürmende getroffene Jünglinge", there dated 1916/1917)

Motivische Verwandtschaften gibt es zu der 1914/1915 entstandenen Plastik "Stürmender" bzw. "Der Getroffene" (vgl. Schubert 82) wie auch zu den um 1916 zu datierenden Kreidezeichnungen der Kriegsjahre, die der lithographischen Komposition sehr nahe kommen (vgl. Händler 546, 548).
