Following the kind confirmation by Uli Bohnen, the work, which was previously unknown to him, can be assigned to other comparable abstract compositions from the inflation year 1923, especially in its arrangement and technique (Uli Bohnen, Franz W. Seiwert 1894-1933, Leben und Werk, exhib. cat. Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne 1978, cf. the works on paper p. 120, cat. nos. 35 - 38).
