Lot Details
Pencil drawing. With the estate stamp (Lugt 1570 b) and the hand-written number "B Be / Bg 101" on the reverse. On smooth wove paper. 52.2 x 39.3 cm. , nearly the full sheet. [CH].
- Dynamic scene in an appealing format. - From the much sought-after Berlin period (1911-1917), which also included Kirchner's famous "Berlin street scenes". - The female nude in the studio is one of the most important motifs in the artist's oeuvre and is an expression of his masterful, direct account of moments and movements. - The studio as a living and working space: Kirchner often integrated elements from his attic apartment on Körnerstrasse in Berlin into his works.
This work is documented in the Ernst Ludwig Kirchner Archive, Wichtrach/Bern.
