Der deutsche Bauernkrieg

Signed and dedicated in pencil and Suetterlin script underneath the depiction 'für Hans und Lis/ Weihnachten 1931 von Franz' (probably for the collector and couple Hans and Lis Schmitt-Rost, Cologne). - With work process-related waves, the edges irregularly cut and partially very minimally torn.

The linoleum cut takes up the left group of the painting of the same name from 1931 (Von der Heydt-Museum, Wuppertal) and its preparatory drawing (cf. Bohnen 100, 176).
